People might not usually expect to see a sign opposing new coal mines outside a church.
Australian Religious Response to Climate Change
Religious leaders have asked Mr Adani to abandon coal mining in Qld and invest in renewable energy instead.
Faith communities joined a nationwide day of action on the weekend of October 7 and 8, against Adani’s proposed Carmichael coal mine.
Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC – pronounced “ark”) was started with the support of The Climate Institute (TCI) in 2007 to galvanise climate action among people of faith. It was inspired by the very successful Interfaith Power and Light in the USA.
Australian Religious Response to Climate Change (ARRCC) provides information to assist individuals, groups and faith communities to learn about and take action against climate change. Last month ARRCC launched the first in a series of Climate Action Kits, a resource produced for faith communities. The kits provide practical advice and information to turn concern for climate change into action.
