THE Archbishop of Canterbury was forced to apologise last night after comparing climate change to the Holocaust.

Justin Welby had raged that cursed world leaders were turning a blind eye to the crisis like their predecessors did during the rise of Hitler.

The head of the Church of England said history would view modern leaders more harshly than those who left millions of Jews to their fate.

He told the BBC: “People will speak of them in far stronger terms than we speak  of the politicians who ignored what was happening in Nazi Germany.

"It will be genocide indirectly, by negligence, recklessness.”

His comparison brought a furious backlash.

Stephen Pollard, the editor of the Jewish Chronicle, branded the comments “so sickening that I simply cannot comprehend how Welby can remain as a priest, let alone Archbishop”.

Mr Welby begged forgiveness, tweeting: “I unequivocally apologise for the words I used when trying to emphasise the gravity of the situation facing us at COP26.”
