Every major faith tradition holds sacred the principle of protecting and preserving Creation. This translates into caring for the common good by not polluting our neighbor’s air, water and land. As people of faith, we are called to respond to global warming by promoting energy conservation, energy, efficiency, and renewable energy. We are called to protect the earth’s ecosystems, safeguard public health, and ensure sufficient, sustainable energy for all.
