Statement on SCOTUS MATS Ruling
Statement of Rev. Mitchell C. Hescox, President/C.E.O:
“The Supreme Court returned EPA’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standard (MATS) to a lower court today. While The Evangelical Environmental Network is disappointed in the ruling, we hope EPA will quickly provide the cost requirements directed by the Supreme Court and allow the continued implementation of this life saving regulation. Mercury is an extremely harmful neurotoxin that threatens the brains of our unborn children. According to Dr. Leonardo Trasande and Dr. Yinghua Liu, methylmercury poisoning cost the United States $8.1 billion dollars in 2008. Click here for the full statement.
Welcome to the home page of the Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN), a ministry dedicated to the care of God’s creation. EEN seeks to equip, inspire, disciple, and mobilize God’s people in their effort to care for God’s creation. We believe that creation care is truly a matter of life and that pollution harms the vulnerable, especially children and the unborn. We believe the body of Christ should be an example by their work and integrity of what God’s people can do in the world to solve some of the great challenges of our time.
Founded in 1993, our ministry is grounded in the Bible’s teaching on the responsibility of God’s people to “tend the garden” through a faithful walk with our Lord Jesus Christ. EEN supports a network of champions who are engaged in creation-care through the church and through their vocational work. EEN publishes and develops material for churches, ministries, families, and individuals to use as they seek to know the Lord more fully, especially his care for all that he has made.
We hope that you will use our ministry as a resource as you seek to faithfully follow God’s call to care for His creation in your home, family, church life, and vocation. We hope you’ll consider becoming a creation-care champion. On the site you will find ways to get started, ways to connect with others, bible study resources, our interactive blog, and programs/initiatives which cover a wide range of creation care topics.
