Archbishop Rowan Williams pre-election open letter on 31 March 2005 to leaders of Political Parties includes four questions. The first question is:

- First: What practical initiatives can be taken to halt and reverse our collective lack of international responsibility about the environment? What real support is available for something like the 'Contraction and Convergence' approach, under which pollution levies can be ploughed back into sustainable development for low-pollution economies? What arguments can you use to bring the USA to the table over these issues? And, prosaically, nearer home, what level of commitment is there to an enforceable code of practice for environmental audits of government offices and public services? Read the whole letter

A planet on the brink. Article from the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Independent on Sunday 17 April 2005

Too often in recent decades, the two big “e” words -- ecology and economy -- have been used as though they represented opposing concerns. Yes, we should be glad to do more about the environment, if only this didn’t interfere with economic development and the liberty of people and nations to create wealth in whatever ways they can.

Or, we should be glad to address environmental issues if we could be sure that we had first resolved the challenge of economic injustice within and between societies. So from both left and right there has often been a persistent sense that it isn’t proper or possible to tackle both together, let alone to give a different sort of priority to ecological matters.

But this separation or opposition has come to look like a massive mistake. It has been said that ‘the economy is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the environment’. The earth itself is what ultimately controls economic activity because it is the source of the materials upon which economic activity works. Read the whole article
