British Bishops Launch Carbon Fast

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. With the holy season of Lent upon us, the bishops of London and Liverpool have come up with a new kind of 40-day fast. Instead of giving up your favorite chocolate or chardonnay, how about cutting down on carbon? Along with the aid agency Tearfund, the British bishops have launched a carbon fast. This Lent, one could give up plastic bags or incandescent bulbs or any other carbon indulgence you could think of. This is MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
