From The Guardian Episcopal church votes to divest from fossil fuels: 'This is a moral issue'
by Suzanne Goldenberg, US environment correspondent
The leadership of the Episcopal church has voted to withdraw from fossil fuel holdings as a means of fighting climate change, delivering an important symbolic victory to environmental campaigners.
