A Safe and Sustainable Environment is a Civil Right for All

We humans are killing the Earth with our polluting. Many of us realize that if we are to prevent global catastrophe, we must change our way of life. We must break our dependence on coal and oil and switch to clean, renewable energy. And we must continue to invest in innovative technology that ensures the Earth will remain safe and sustainable for our children and future generations.

Despite widespread awareness that humans cause global climate change, the Trump administration has continued to roll back safeguards designed to protect our environment. It favors lobbyists who are fine with continued pollution of the Earth because they profit from it. However, a group of young leaders has emerged, suing the federal government and arguing that a safe and sustainable environment is a civil right. They are also demanding that the government develop and implement a plan to combat and reverse climate change.

We as people of faith concur with these new leaders and demand that our elected officials recognize the paramount issue of global climate change and immediately work to address it.

I urge you to create policies that will break our dependence on coal and oil and switch to sources of clean, renewable energy. We must continue to invest in innovative technology that ensures the Earth will remain safe and sustainable for our children and future generations.
