Anglicans Join Protest of Global Warming
Braving gusty winds, Anglicans joined tens of thousands of marchers in Montreal Dec. 3 to lead a worldwide protest against global warming – demonstrations that coincided with the United Nations climate change conference, held Nov. 28 to Dec. 9, during which delegates discussed the future of the global fight against global warming.
Companion marches were held concurrently in 29 countries around the world.
The historic meeting was the first to be held in North America and the first since the Kyoto Protocol – an international agreement requiring industrialized countries to reduce their global warming pollution – went into effect a year ago. The United States has never ratified the Kyoto Protocol even though it produces almost 25 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases.
