From Mr John Madeley

Sir, — After the climate deal reached in Paris last weekend, it would surely be timely for every church to carry out an environmental audit to find out its carbon emissions and to take steps to reduce them.

As most Anglican churches face east and have south-facing roofs, there is excellent scope for solar panels. Churches could make an important contribution to helping the country move to a carbon-free future — and cut their electricity bills, into the bargain.
