Just Energy 4 All
Greenhouse gases include carbon dioxide, methane and other gases that trap heat in our atmosphere and warm our earth. The energy sector is the biggest emitter of human-made greenhouse gases and the greatest contributor to global warming. Global warming contributes to climate change.
Join United Women in Faith and faith leaders around the United States and urge Congress to pass economic recovery and infrastructure legislation that addresses the harms of climate change and pollution. We must modernize existing water, transportation and energy infrastructure to be centered on equity and justice.
Tell elected officials to support clean air and climate legislation and funding! We urge Congress to pass clean air and climate legislation and funding, including the $550 billion in investments that will cut dangerous pollution, prioritize clean energy investments, and advance environmental justice. Join United Women in Faith and other partner organizations in advocating for clean air.
“The adverse impacts of global climate change disproportionately affect individuals and nations least responsible for the emissions. We therefore support efforts of all governments to require mandatory reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and call on individuals, congregations, businesses, industries, and communities to reduce their emission.”—UMC Social Principles 2016 General Conference
