As people of faith, we have a duty to care for God's creation, especially in an era of climate crisis. Pope Francis has been clear that one of the major ways we must care for creation is to replace technology based on the use of highly polluting fossil fuels without delay (cf. LS 165).
That's why a coalition of US-based faith organizations is launching a new campaign in support of Big Shift, a global effort calling on the World Bank to end all support for fossil fuels and shift investment to renewable energy access. The World Bank continues to subsidize fossil fuels, which fans the flames of the ongoing climate emergency, despite scientific evidence showing the impact of continued investment and usage of such fuels.
We need your help! Tell World Bank President David Malpass that the time is now to end support for fossil fuels and invest in clean energy. Sign the petition today.
