Churches and Climate Change


There's been a whirlwind of discussion (pardon the pun) about climate change, global warming, rising sea levels, etc. etc. etc., over the last decades. A key element of the jabber involves the impact of humankind activities on these changes, now and in the future. While the geological record reveals this ole Earth has been through numerous shifts in cold and warm climates, drought, flood, fire, and earthquake, some people think that we, by our actions or lack of actions, can materially influence climate change. Where do religious organizations stand on this issue?
For an excellent summary of how churches are reacting to climate change, check out Cyndi  Levesque's blog, God's World in the Balance, at http://cslevesque.com/2014/07/blog-post-2-2/
Roman Catholic, Evangelicals, Lutherans, Methodists, Episcopal and other Christian Interfaith web sites may reveal surprising stands on this question. Thanks, Cyndi, for such an informative blog.
