The author reflects on the 2010 Carbon Fast, which aims to help people reduce carbon emissions during the Lenten season. The idea came from James Jones, the Bishop of Liverpool, England, who believes that the Church could play a role in combating climate change. He mentions Bishop of London, Richard Chartres as another one supporting the initiative. The author believes in the power and influence of bishops in addressing climate change.
