Why climate change is a faith cause
Jesus makes it very clear that his followers are to Love God, and love our neighbors. And who are our neighbors? Everybody. This report about the threat to people living along the coasts of the United States - within the time frame of a 30-year mortgage! - makes it clear that even though we in northern Illinois are not at risk from chronic, tidal flooding, our carbon use and misuse is a matter of loving our neighbors, or not. This is why we care; this is why environmental concerns are a matter of theology, a matter of faith, a matter of ethics and morality for people of faith.
