For ten years, various activists have been warning and educating about sustainable development. Who do we go to? The church has been silent.
WWF works with religious leaders and faith communities who best articulate ethical and spiritual ideals around the sacred value of Earth and its diversity. All WWF field programs have ongoing partnerships with local faith communities that work on a range of issues.
WWF has been involved in promoting cooperation between the worlds of religion and the environment since 1986 when HRH Prince Philip, then President of WWF, invited the leaders of the five major world religions to discuss how faith could help save the natural world.
Professor E O Wilson, Harvard University: “If the religious people of the world who make up, of course, the vast majority of people, could become interested in saving biodiversity which is, after all, the 'creation' and make it part of religious faith as it should be, then they might be able to join scientists in an alliance and really make conservation important enough spiritually, even religiously, to gain the kind of support needed to actually save what is left of life on earth.”
Robert Watson, chief scientist, World Bank: “The role of the churches could be very, very powerful. It would be great if the world’s community of religions would become a powerful voice working with the communities on how to protect the environment and influencing decision makers in both the private sector and in governments to recognise that we need to protect our environment, not destroy it.”

The real irony is that those 'interests' tied to the majority of the worlds biggest polluters are the driving force behind this. i.e Rockerfeller and Co.
This is nothing to do with cleaning up the world, its just a way of the NWO justifiying itself to the brainwashed sheeple.
"Oh please save us from ourselves and take away our freedom so we dont destroy the world".
