CALL TO ACTION!
Desmond Tutu is a South African social rights activist, Nobel Peace Prize recipient and retired Anglican bishop who rose to worldwide fame during the 1980s as an opponent of apartheid.
At the age of 83, despite some health problems, he has taken up the cause of climate change by encouraging people all over the world to sign a petition imploring our political leaders to take assertive action.
“If we stay on our current course, our world can expect to suffer more deadly storms, heat waves, droughts, crop failures, water shortages, mass migration, and new threats to our health and security.
This will hurt all of us -- especially the hungry, the sick, the poor, and the excluded. The people who benefited least from the burning of fossil fuels are already paying a steep price.”
If you are concerned about our degradation of the planet because of the burning of fossil fuels – why not sign the petition!
