US - do more to cut CO2 emissions

A group of influential US evangelicals has launched a campaign to persuade Americans that being a good Christian also means tackling climate change.
The 86 leaders are running prominent adverts in newspapers and on TV urging Christians and the US government to do more to cut carbon dioxide emissions.
Scientists say CO2 emissions are one of the main causes of global warming.
It calls on Congress to do more to encourage companies to reduce carbon emissions, advocating a market-based approach to curb emissions through a cap-and-trade bill.
