Islamic environmental and religious leaders have called on rich countries and oil producing nations to end fossil fuel use by 2050. The Islamic Climate Declaration says that the world’s 1.6bn Muslims have a religious duty to fight climate change. It urges politicians to agree a new treaty to limit global warming to 2C, “or preferably 1.5 degrees.” The Declaration asks Muslims, in the words of the Koran, “not to strut arrogantly on the Earth”.
In this subsequent article – “Rethinking growth: Islamic perspectives” – the notion of ‘green jihad’ is proposed.
