Desmond Tutu: Developed Countries Caused Global Warming

In a video message to a meeting of the World Development Movement lobby group on Thursday, former Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town and Nobel Peace laureate Desmond Tutu said that developed countries have caused global warming and need to be the leaders in cutting their carbon gas emissions.

Tutu said that businessmen who take flights instead of using video conferencing are sentencing the poor people of the world to death, and that up to 185 million Africans would die this century because of climate change.

You mean polar bears aren’t the only mammals affected by global warming? Here’s to hoping Tutu’s words won’t fall on deaf ears in the countries that need to hear them most.

You know. Like ours.
