"The first council of Nicea, held 1690 years ago this summer, decided upon a consensus about the nature of God, namely that the son had been 'begotten not made, being of one substance with the father,' as Athanasius argued, and not created out of nothing as Arius argued. Phew. Glad they settled that. The 21st conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also known as 'the 11th session of the meeting of the parties to the Kyoto protocol', in Paris this December, will be scarcely less theological." Viscount Matt Ridley blogs about the relevance (or lack of it?) of the Paris climate conference.
