Our faith, our planet, our responsibility
Global warming has reached a crisis of severe environmental, social and moral consequences. Scientists have concluded that the severe effects of global warming are primarily due to human activity – the burning of fossil fuels, destruction of forests, and release of heat-trapping gasses such as carbon dioxide.
Missouri IPL seeks to illuminate global warming as a social justice concern; the poorest among us will be the ones most affected by the climate-induced heat waves, floods, famines, and droughts.
In promoting Missouri’s interfaith community, we recognize that every major faith tradition relates an ethical and moral framework for stewardship of the environment and acceptance of our responsibility to care for the earth. We can all share in the protection of the planet for our children and future generations.
