Geneva - The World Council of Churches on Wednesday called on its members to push their governments to agree to a deal at the December climate conference in Copenhagen that “drastically” reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The organization which represents churches with 550 million Christians as members “identifies the current unprecedented ecological crises as being created by humans, caused especially by the agro-industrial-economic complex and the culture of the North.”
