…the storms, the wildfires, the droughts. We know that continuing our present course will diminish human life. For the sake of the poor, for future generations, and for nature itself, society must become carbon neutral. The change is large, and it can be done.
Presbyterian Climate Advocates are a small group of church leaders who believe that, with God’s help, we can forge a new future. We advocate for a carbon fee and dividend plan to help drive the economy to renewable alternatives. We seek to live sustainably ourselves, and we help congregations and families conserve energy. And we invite others to act with us.
We offer four-week on-line courses for individuals and groups called Faith and the Climate Crisis. The next course will take place Sundays, July 10-31, 2022 (4:00-5:15pm EDT) via Zoom.
