Climate Change: Protecting the Earth and all of God’s Creation

When Senators return from their Memorial Day recess they are scheduled to debate climate change legislation.

Click here to tell your Senators you want justice for all of God’s Creation.

America’s Climate Security Act, co-sponsored by Senators Lieberman (I), Connecticut and Warner (R), Virginia, is a critical first step towards addressing global climate change.

We applaud the efforts of these Senators to find common ground on this critical issue and move forward with consensus legislation to address global climate change.

We urge the Senate to continue this path and take meaningful and measurable steps to

•    follow scientific recommendations by reducing carbon emissions 15-20 percent by 2020 and 80 percent by 2050
•    shield vulnerable populations from the disproportionate dangers they will be exposed to as the planet warms and
•    limit the financial burdens placed on those living in poverty and low-income families by spreading costs of changing
      our energy habits fairly and sustainably.

Current legislation includes initial forms of these provisions and it is our hope they will be strengthened as this process moves forward.

Join with people of faith from around the U.S. to advocate for strong emissions reductions and justice for people in poverty and those who are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
