It was reported in the weekend Sun that “The Presbyterian Church (USA) has opted to pull investments from five energy corporations” namely Chevron, ExxonMobil, Marathon Petroleum, Phillips 66 and Valero Energy for failure (in the Church’s opinion) to address climate change.

My question is: Is the Presbyterian Church going to refuse to accept tithes and contributions from employees and annuitants of these companies? I don’t think so!

I'm trying to find mention in the Bible about the church and the Gospel say about "climate change", which literally is a coined phrase that man is the main culprit in our weather. I can find no mention where this is part of the good news.
