Eco-Roadshow-020Revd Andrew Orr

The current UN climate change conference taking place in Paris is causing us all to reflect on our carbon emissions. Revd Andrew Orr, Archdeacon of Ossory and Leighlin and rector of Tullow is Chair of Eco Congregation Ireland. He is deeply involved in using the Church as a way of creating greater awareness about our carbon footprint. He says that Churches have a moral imperative as well as the organisational skills to take action. Miriam Gormally began by asking him whether he thought something good would come out of the climate talks or whether, like our own Enda Kenny, every leader would look for a dispensation for their own country.
