Climate Impacts Faith

At the center of many of the world’s faiths is the belief that God created the world and entrusted us to care for the complex and beautiful ecosystems that support life. We’re called to not pollute the homes, water and air of our neighbors any more than we would poison our own homes.

That’s why people of faith across Washington are joining the Alliance for Jobs and Clean Energy and taking action to protect our one-and-only atmosphere by reducing pollution and supporting the transition to a clean energy economy that will leave a better world for all God’s children.

We need to care for the earth so that it may continue, as God willed, to be a source of life for the entire human family. Pope Francis
