New 21st century idea for Lent : giving up carbon

Here is a great idea for the million of Christians around the world. To Climate Progress : ” For many Christians, the 40-day period of fasting and reflection before Easter known as Lent is a chance to get in mental and spiritual shape. “

” (…) this year, thousands of Christians worldwide are making a bigger statement: giving up carbon to help save the planet. “ Who knows, this could lead these people for more action on preserving our beautiful planet.

I just wish the Pope invited Christians to “give up” carbon for Lent and beyond Easter. This would resonate well given his recent call for action on the very matter. What do you think ?
