To: The Synod and Standing Committee of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney

Divest Sydney Anglican Diocese from fossil fuels

Reason for signing

  • British analysts have calculated that 80% of current listed reserves of coal, gas and oil will need to stay in the ground in order to have a chance at limiting global warming to 2 degrees C . The fossil fuel industry will keep digging up the fossil fuel for profits for shareholders. If its sinful to destroy God's creation and inflict untold suffering on generations of humanity then it is sinful to profit from doing so. Divest of the shares in fossil fuel please.
