ABC News recently published an article highlighting events at a climate change conference in Greece that Rev. Antal recently attended. Here's a quick snippet:
Leading climate change experts and campaigners said Wednesday they would work with the leaders of the Orthodox Church and other religions to fight global warming, after expressing concern that their message was not reaching people fast enough.
Scientists, campaigners, and economists involved in the climate change debate gathered on the Greek island of Spetses at a conference organized by the spiritual leader of the world's Orthodox Christians.
Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew — dubbed the "Green Patriarch" for his support of environmental causes — inaugurated the two-day conference.
