Muslims of #Manchester – happy to promote your #climate work – get in touch.

The same goes for Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, younameits, pagans, atheists.

The reason I name-check Muslims is that there’s a very good piece by Arthur Neslen

Islamic leaders issue bold call for rapid phase out of fossil fuels

The Istanbul declaration was made by Islamic figures from Bosnia to Indonesia and follows a ground-breaking Papal encyclical last month. Heads of state, corporations, and all peoples are addressed in the Istanbul call, which carries a universal and startlingly bleak message.

“We are in danger of ending life as we know it on our planet,” the statement says. “This current rate of climate change cannot be sustained, and the earth’s fine equilibrium (mīzān) may soon be lost.”

“What will future generations say of us, who leave them a degraded planet as our legacy?” the religious leaders ask. “How will we face our Lord and Creator?”

Quite.
