Extracts from the joint press conference by José Manuel Barroso, Hans-Gert Pöttering, Janez Janša, and religious leaders, on climate change

45 views

At a joint press conference on 5 May 2008 in Brussels, the European institutions (Commission, Council and Parliament) called Europe's Jewish, Muslim and Christian leaders to increase awareness of climate change among their congregations. José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, said that churches, mosques and temples all have a role to play to help save the planet. Janez Janša, Slovenian Prime Minister and President in office of the Council of the EU, told that the role of the different religions is a key one in this undertaking which is intended to safeguard what is called in the Bible and in the Koran the creation. José Manuel Barroso urged that it is a question also of ethical responsibility since climate change also addresses problems like poverty and the development in other parts of the world, and since also climate change is responsible for conflicts that can only deepen in the future if we do not act as soon as possible. Combating climate change was the focus of talks with 20 religious leaders from across Europe.
