Science is crucial to an informed faith. It does not answer the moral or spiritual questions but it helps us understand the issues we need to deal with.
For Christians, science is a way of understanding what we can of God’s creation, through using experimental methods and drawing inferences from these to the best explanations we can find.
Climate science is still uncertain in the sense that all human knowledge is provisional and open to correction. But it is certain enough.
Science tells us it is extremely likely that human influence has been the dominant cause of the global warming since the mid-20th century, and that limiting climate change will require substantial and sustained reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. There is an overwhelming consensus from climate scientists that we know enough to make policy decisions to move away from dependence on fossil fuels – and that we need to do so urgently.
Through research and analysis, we equip Britain’s churches with an understanding of scientific evidence, and its consequences in economic and political choice.
