Bishop responds to climate concerns raised by World Economic Forum 16/01/2019

The Bishop of Dudley, Graham Usher, has described a risk report by the World Economic Forum as 'significant,' warning that those in the world's most deprived areas will be affected most severely by Climate Change.

Bishop Graham said: “It is significant that the threats posed by climate change have been recognised by the world’s top economic experts.

“While this report serves to strengthen calls for urgent action to protect and sustain God’s creation, it also highlights the peril of inactivity and delay, which particularly places the economically poorest people in our world at risk of devastating consequences.”

Bishop Graham Usher is a member of the Church of England's Environmental Working Group.
