On Saturday October 24, a group, including many Sisters of Mercy, gathered in the courtyard at Bardon in Brisbane, to ring out bells to declare our support for strong action at the Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen, in order to bring greenhouse gas emissions down to at least 350 parts per million.
