Most people who study solutions to climate change agree that, given the political will to make it happen, it is possible to slow the increase of atmospheric CO2. As of 2018, this will is lacking in the federal government. Fortunately, state and local governments are in a good position to implement climate-protecting legislation, and faith based conservation organizations are in a good position to encourage this implementation.
Faith communities bring the moral voice to our elected officials. Faith communities can take part in helping support local, state and federal policies that create resilient communities and protect our climate. IPL helps build a strong coalition of people of faith who care about what our government does to protect our families and vulnerable communities from climate change and its related effect on events such as massive wildfires and stronger and more frequent hurricanes.
