Unhappy with Copenhagen accord, churches urge ongoing action
December 22, 2009
Geneva (ENI). Faith groups have expressed disappointment and anger over the outcome of the United Nations talks on climate change that have ended in Copenhagen, pledging to continue to press for climate justice. "With a lack of transparency, the agreement reached this past week by some countries was negotiated without consensus but rather in secret among the powerful nations of the world," the World Council of Churches' programme executive on climate change, Guillermo Kerber, stated.
