The Time is Now: Join the Movement of Faith Leaders Caring for the Earth
In a recent report from CNN focused on the Pope’s call for a revolution when it comes to our approach to climate change, journalists noted that 97% of scientists believe that our earth’s climate is changing because of human activities. The fingerprint of climate change is clear as we look at melting icecaps, inland flooding, acidifying oceans and rising temperatures. As Pope Francis reminds us in his recently released encyclical, “The Earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth. In many parts of the planet, the elderly lament that once beautiful landscapes are now covered with rubbish.” Today, we unite as religious leaders and people of faith to act on behalf of our planet and the future generations of people who will follow us. Climate change is just as much a moral and religious issue as it is a scientific and political issue. Addressing the challenges we now face will take us all working together.
