Thousands of people from nearly 200 countries traveled recently to Bonn, Germany for the 23rd annual United Nations climate change conference. For the past two weeks, representatives from each country planned how to effectively and robustly implement the Paris climate agreement.
This is a crucial moment. Given the administration's decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris agreement, it is more important than ever for Americans like you to show that they are still committed to caring for God's creation by reducing our contribution to climate change.
Now that representatives from around the world have left Germany, the U.S. Congress has an opportunity to faithfully live out its moral duty to care for its citizens.
Over the next month, Congress will be making final decisions on how to fund the federal government. This includes funding for departments like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and programs that would help vulnerable communities handle the impacts of climate change.
Please take a moment to write your Members of Congress and urge them to use their tools to protect creation and our vulnerable sisters and brothers by supporting funding for climate solutions.
