Southern African Primate takes part in 24-hour climate change broadcast

Posted on: December 5, 2017 11:07 AM

The Archbishop of Cape Town, Archbishop Thabo Makgoba, is taking part in a live 24-hour broadcast to detail how people all over the world are fighting the climate crisis. The Anglican Church of Southern Africa’s Green Anglicans group is partnering with the 24 Hours of Reality broadcast, which is being put together by the Climate Reality Project, a US-based NGO founded by former US Vice President Al Gore, a Nobel Laureate. Archbishop Thabo’s contribution will take place at 3 pm today SABT (1 pm GMT).

“We are at an important moment in the climate movement,” he Climate Reality Project said. “As the first truly global accord, the Paris Agreement was monumental. And yet with it came numerous questions about how each nation – and each of us individually – can create the continued change that is required. The inflection point at hand is about the transition from debate and denial, to action and sustainable growth for all.”

The Climate Reality Project is a “millions-strong organisation” that “stands up to climate denial and spreads the truth about the climate crisis to empower our leaders to take action.”

You can watch the 24-hour broadcast on the Green Anglicans’ Facebook page or through the embedded video below.
