The Uniting Church in Australia has joined other Christian churches and faith groups in national action on climate change.
On Thursday 6 October, Dr Mark Zirnsak from the Victoria Tasmania Synod represented the Uniting Church in Australia at a hearing of the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties on the Paris Agreement.
Already in 2016 there have been a number of extreme weather events devastating communities in Australia and around the world. Last year was declared the hottest year on record. Human induced climate change is a significant threat to human life, to future generations and to a just peace.
