Copenhagen is about Climate Justice Mike Ghouse, Pluralist

Climate Justice assures every one in the long haul that one can continue living and breathing regardless of being rich or poor. Protecting the environment is the right thing to do; indeed it is a sacred duty of every human. As an individual or a nation we cannot shut ourselves in a bubble; either we suffer the damage together or save the environment for all. None of us can live in silos.

I appeal to the religious and political leaders to take the responsibility to bring climate justice to the world. The purpose of religion and the purpose of governance is to bring balance (justice) to an individual and what surround one; the people and environment. Climate is not a monopoly, we cannot have good climate while others don't, what affects others affects us, there ain't no exclusive conclaves, a pluralistic approach guarantees safety and climate security for all.

Our responsibility for future is a critical decision, and I urge President Obama to do the right thing and not yield to the right wingers. We have to protect the planet including the lives of irresponsible Neocons who presume to live in bunkers for life.

The future shock revisited Dr. Shariff. It was 1970 when Alvin Toffler’s book Future Shock shook the imagination of millions in developing countries as to how the western way of life and markets threatened the future of humanity. His shock was emanated not only from the western ‘waste’ or ‘greed’ but also from the ‘pace of change that took place’ since the second war and great depression - http://wisdomofreligion.blogspot.com/2009/12/healing-planet-dr-abus...

Developing Countries Say ‘No Money, No Deal’ in Climate Talks Envoys from 192 countries discussing a climate-protection accord in the Danish capital released a draft on Dec. 11 that shows they cannot agree on how to police an agreement. The document contains no subsidies to help developing nations cut carbon-dioxide emissions and adapt to climate change.

Climate Justice was one the major themes to come out of the recent PWR in Melbourne. For those who were not able to be there, the session on "The human face of climate change" was captured on video. The speakers were Martin Frick, Director of the Global Humanitarian Forum, Mary Eveylyn Tucker, founder of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale, and a moving spirit behind the Earth Charter, and Australia's Tim Costello, CEO of World Vision Australia.

You can find the videos here, alongside regular updates from a team of activists in Copenhagen who are working behind the scenes there with a faith motivation. http://iofcenvironment.wordpress.com/
