Páscoa 2008: jejum de carbono..

Notícia apanhada pelo Mário Alves:

Church advocates carbon fast for Lent

Notícia do Guardian a dizer que a igreja de inglaterra está a sugerir aos seus fieis jejum. Mas não o tradicional... este ano é um jejum de carbono ...

<>The Church of England is urging people to cut down on carbon, rather than chocolate, for Lent this year.

Two senior bishops within the church are joining with development agency Tearfund in calling for a cut in personal carbon use for each of the 40 days of Lent, which begins tomorrow.

<>Chartres, the 132nd Bishop of London and the Church of England's third most senior figure after the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, has previously said that Christians have a moral duty to save the planet. In 2006 he pledged not to fly for a year, saying that "making selfish choices such as flying on holiday or buying a large car" were a "symptom of sin".
