Caring for the environment

The Church supports the Government’s ratification of the Kyoto Protocol, and we advocate for the ordering of our lives – as individuals and organisations - around sound principals of sustainability.  We urge the Government to reiterate NZ’s anti-nuclear stance by condemning international plans to use nuclear power as a means of mitigating greenhouse emissions.  We also urge the Government to hasten its development of strategies for the treatment and reduction of emissions caused by our agricultural sector, which causes most of NZ’s emissions.
