Discussion and debate about climate change has been a feature of mainstream public
discourse in Australia since the mid 2000s, discourse which has become highly politicised
in the last several years.Some of Australia’s church denominations, congregations/parishes,
church aid and development agencies, and ecumenical networks have spoken publicly
about climate change and its implications for humans and God’s larger Creation,
and have urged the churches and the broader society to mitigate climate change and
its effects on the most vulnerable. Some congregations, parishes and individual
Christians have also engaged with these issues.
