Susan Stephenson, Executive Director of Interfaith Power & Light, is interviewed by The Ecologist about the role of faith-based organizations in shifting popular attitudes and perceptions about global warming and climate change. In her interview, Susan emphasized that the climate change message is well received when delivered by a trusted clergy person, adding: ‘Climate change should not be a political football. It is a call to be good stewards of God’s creation and take care of vulnerable communities. It is quite appropriate that this is something that faith communities should be involved in. It should be right up there with justice, peace and love.’ This article also explores other initiatives in the United States and the United Kingdom.
