Churches call for crackdown on carbon emissions

The Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Methodist Church and the United Reformed Church have urged the Government to reduce Britain’s carbon emissions following Lord Turner’s report published today.

It comes as the Methodist Church – working with Church Action on Poverty – also sent out leaflets to all its churches today with information on how to reduce fuel bills and CO2 emissions.

The three denominations backed the report’s aim to substantially reduce carbon emissions by 2023. They called on Ministers to turn away from investment in coal-fired power stations and look towards pumping significant investment into energy conservation.
