A Christian voice on climate in Australia

This piece from John McIntyre, Anglican Bishop of Gippsland, is an example of a genre that appears only very occasionally: an Australian Christian speaking directly about the ethics of climate change in the mainstream media. Does anyone have other examples? Please provide a link in the comments.

A Catholic changes his mind on climate. (H/t Liz)

Tim Costello is, of course, a notable exception, having appeared many times in public on this topic.

There was a conference on consuming creation at Ridley earlier this year, where Michael Northcott was the main speaker. (H/t Kath on FB.)

This is at least evidence of a theological college wanting to wrestle with these matters, but the fact that they decided to get someone from here to be the speaker may also be telling. I'd love to know the back history of this conference and how it was arranged.

It looks like I can now post comments again - unless something goes wrong when I hit enter! Here's something else from CathNews, called Carbon price policy welcomed by Catholic Groups, that has links to two media releases.

Through Hope for Creation, I've also just come across Manna Gum - enough for all, which looks very interesting.
