Religious groups and other groups have been working together to help people cope with the devastating effects of climate change.
We need a new religion in this world, and that’s why we’re here,” said Rev. Matthew Langer, an Episcopal priest in Edmonton.
The Rev. Langer has been working with other churches to help vulnerable people cope and learn to cope with climate change, and has been a mentor to people struggling with the consequences.”
When the Earth warms up, people get hit with a huge heatwave and heat stroke.
And then, when the temperatures fall, it’s really hard to breathe and lose the ability to move.
We’re not going as quickly as we think, but we’re still doing our best.””
It’s not going to be easy.
We’re not going as quickly as we think, but we’re still doing our best.”
The Rev Langer said the church has helped with some of the more remote locations where people are struggling.
There are people who can’t get access to food, and some of them are even in need of counselling.
“The church is very important in terms of helping these people to be better.
We can help them find support, because we have a community of people who help each other,” he explained.
Some of the groups who are helping are trying to educate people about the effects of CO2 emissions and how to cope.
“There’s a lot of fear, and it’s hard to put your head down, but you have to learn to accept it.
We don’t have to accept that this is the reality, that the world is going to change,” he added.
People who can help are encouraged to attend church, listen to the Gospel message and pray to Jesus.
