While many people continue to believe there is no climate crisis, those most affected by global warming—particularly in the global South—know otherwise. According to Sojourners magazine’s interview with Malawi activist Victor Mughogho, the “impacts are quite severe on the ground.”
Rose Marie Berger writes in the May 2013 Sojourners magazine cover story, “For God So Loved the World,” that people of faith are key to reversing climate change. It will take a holy power shift to compel God’s people to care for creation and “launch an irresistible force for change.”
In creative and bold ways, people of faith from various religious traditions are doing just that. Together, they are raising their voices and taking action to address climate change.
Fiction with a climate change theme.
Climate change leads to far more consequences than just destructive weather patterns.
Victor Mughogho works with local churches in southeast Africa to address the effects of climate change. But is it enough?
Those who study together can also change together. Here are our recommendations for good books, videos, and online resources for stepping forward to reverse climate change.
Thermal mass: More than 30 tons of plaster and other mass on the inside of the house collects and stores heat from sunlight.
Forest-certified lumber: Along with local posts and beams, we used wood certified as sustainably harvested.
Recycled vinyl shingles: Located on the one "traditional" roof that holds our solar panels, these shingles are made from 80 percent post-consumer recycled material and will last more than 50 years.
More than just another green house, 'Woodhaven' builds community.
What will it take to push back climate change? A Spirit-driven 'power shift' might be a key.
"Given the option of paying more for dirty power or paying less for clean power, what would you take?"
