Catholic Church urges parishioners to use sustainable energy

Churches get together with environmentalists: Their
extraordinary statement on climate change pointed to a converging
partnership between church leaders, environmentalists and scientists,
giving moral force to public campaigns to win environmental safeguards.

National church strategy formed: It formed part of a national
church strategy to mobilise Australian Catholics to face the changes
required to tackle global climate change. Copies would be sent to more
than 4000 parishes, schools, religious congregations and church
agencies.

Catholics urged to use sustainable practices: It would be
followed by an updated audit which urges them to switch to more
sustainable practices, including use of gas or solar heating and green
electricity, grey water recycling systems, car pooling and ethical
investment policy for savings.
