Climate & The Vulnerable

  • June 19,2012, 11:32 AM

    Can cutting pollution save lives?

    Environmental toxins and climate change have repercussions for many of today's pressing issues from the health of our children, to global and domestic poverty, to jobs and economic growth. This makes how we care for God's creation one of the greatest moral challenges of our time. And as Christians, we also know it is a challenge that cuts to the heart of how we promote and cherish life.

  • Pollution Reduction: A Pro-Life Call to Action

    June 19,2012, 11:51 AM

     

    If you're like me, sometimes the problems we face can seem overwhelming and too complex for straightforward solutions. One in six of our children are being born with harmful levels of mercury in their bloodstream. The changing climate is causing floods, droughts, and famine that severely harm the least of these at home and across the globe. And our addiction to old fossil-based, non-renewable energy is crippling our economy and costing us jobs. It can be hard to believe that one straightforward step, cutting our pollution, can address all these concerns. But it can.

    The EPA is working now to implement pollution-control policies under the 1990 Clean Air Act, which was passed with overwhelming bi-partisan support. These actions will protect life, promote a cleaner, healthier environment, and create jobs by moving us toward a clean economy we can hand down to our kids and grandkids. As Christians we have a powerful voice to add to these conversations and can offer an important witness in defense of life. All it takes is one click to add your name to thousands of Christians speaking out and supporting EPA protections. Will you join us?

    In Christ,

    Rev. Mitch Hescox

    THE PLEDGE

    (click here to sign the pledge)

    As a pro-life Christian I'm committed to helping reduce pollution and its impact on the vulnerable. I care about the future and the future we'll leave to our kids and grandkids.

    The problems we face can seem overwhelming and too complex for straightforward solutions. One in six of our children are being born with harmful levels of mercury in their bloodstream. The changing climate is causing floods, droughts, and famine that severely harm the least of these at home and across the globe. And our addiction to old fossil-based, non-renewable energy is crippling our economy and costing us jobs. It can be hard to believe that one straightforward step, cutting our pollution, can address all these concerns. But it can.

    I commit to the following steps

    Contacting My Member of Congress

    The implementers (i.e., the EPA) need support and protection from those in Congress and industry who feel that there should be no limits on carbon pollution.

    Making My Views Known to the EPA

    I pledge to let the EPA know why as a Pro-Life Christian I believe putting limits on carbon is an urgent moral issue.(sample text below)

    Dear EPA Administrator Jackson:

    As a pro-Life Christian, I urge you and the EPA to remain strong in your efforts to address carbon pollution through the authority of the Clean Air Act.

    The reality of climate change is already being felt here in the U.S. and around the world in the form of extreme weather and health impacts, which most affect the unborn, poor, and powerless. It is time for America to tackle this great moral challenge. Doing so protects life and abides by Christ's teaching to love one care for the least of these , who will be hit hardest by climate change.

    Thank you.

    Hear first hand what missionaries are experiencing when it comes to climate and the vulnerable, hear what's happening on the ground in countries like Malawi, Zambia, and Honduras, hear from young evangelicals and what they're asking us to consider when it comes to climate change, and hear about what the Lausanne Movement (founded by Billy Graham and John Stott) is calling us to do when it comes to addressing creation care and climate.
