Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne Speaks on Sustainability
Posted in Events by Virginia on May 12th, 2009
Anglican Archbishop of Melbourne, Dr Philip Freier, hosts a monthly series of “Conversations” at Federation Square in Melbourne. They are free, public events with topics and themes “on the public mind”.
Dr Freier will be joined by the PM’s adviser on Climate Change and author of the 2008 Garnaut Climate Change Review, Professor Ross Garnaut, for a discussion on exploring the question â€˜Does Australia have a sustainable future?’ The conversation is expected to be challenging and controversial as it considers the difficult energy choices which lie before us.
Christian nuclear energy advocate and environmentalist, Ian Hore-Lacy, will also join the archbishop and Professor Garnaut for the conversation. Mr Hore-Lacy believes Christians are focusing on the wrong thing: “Christians need to stop talking about the environment and properly address the broader and more significant reality of God’s creation.” He believes â€˜populist bandwagons’ are distracting attention from the real solutions.
