Australia's Faith Communities on Climate Change
16 Religions Join in Support of Solving Global Climate Change

In what is believed to be world first, 16 Australian faith communities representing the world's great religious traditions have united to speak out on climate change. Working with the Climate Institute, these faith communities all published their beliefs on the importance of resolving the problem of Climate Change caused by human activities.

The 16 groups include Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Jews and Aboriginal Australians, and together represent nearly the 3/4 of Australians that claim to have a religious affiliation. Experts on religion in Australia said that said it was unusual to get so many major faith groups speaking out on one issue, and that it was an indication of the depth of the concern they shared about climate change.

The report, entitled, "Common Belief: Faith Communities on Climate " makes for some interesting reading, as each faith’s statement reflects their particular philosophy as it applies to the problem of Global Climate Change.
