Climate changeInterfaith Power and Light 2014 Preach-In on Climate Change

Climate change has been called the “defining human development challenge of the 21st century.” It’s vital that faith communities work together to address climate change. Carbon pollution is rising, creating the spectre of coastal flooding for much of the world, including many large population centers, and the likelihood of more frequent weather catastrophes involving the displacement of millions of people. Despite an overwhelming consensus within the scientific community about the cause and consequences of climate change, most governments, including our own, have not yet adopted critical preventive and adaptive measures. However, new first-ever limits on the carbon pollution emitted from power plants have been proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, an important step.

Join the American Baha’i community and people of faith across the country participating in the 2014 Preach-in on Climate Change, organized by Interfaith Power and Light (IPL), the leading national organization that works to help faith communities conserve energy, educate their members on climate change, and advocate for a safe climate.

Watch these two videos to learn more:

Rev. Canon Sally Bingham, Founder and President of IPL, reflects on the spiritual dimensions of the climate issue.

Christine Muller, a Baha’i who serves on the IPL state board of Rhode Island, shares insights on the role of faith communities in the climate issue and opportunities presented by the 2014 Preach-in.

To participate in the Preach-In, register at www.preachin.org (it’s quick and easy). Download the free Preach-In Kit along with supplemental materials prepared by the U.S. Baha’i Office of Public Affairs (for devotionals, children’s classes and junior youth activities on the themes of environmental stewardship and justice), and plan an activity for the Preach-in weekend of February 14 – 16, 2014.

Questions? Contact the U.S. Baha’i Office of Public Affairs by phone, 202-833-8990, or by email, bahaisUS@usbnc.org.
