Australian Archbishop calls on politicians to end shame of failure to act on climate change

The Archbishop of Australia, The Most Revd George Browning, has called upon both the Australian Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition to make Australia a leader in tackling climate change rather than shamefully failing to meets it responsibilites as at present.
He writes:
"May I be bold enough to suggest a simple test? Sit face to face with a child - any child, anywhere - and looking them in the eye, say plainly: 'I am doing everything in my power to safeguard your future and life with this earth.' May I be doubly bold to say that at this moment, you cannot truthfully speak this way to any person, let alone to the child."
