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.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Sojourners.
A Safe and Sustainable Environment is a Civil Right for All
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a person of faith, I am outraged by your lack of a comprehensive plan to address and reverse global climate change. 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.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
