Religious leaders act on climate change

I'm glad to read that leaders of different denominations and faiths are coming together to speak for those who don't have a voice.

Religious leaders act on climate change (Yahoo News/AP, H. JOSEF HEBERT, 31 Oct '07)

"While not all of us agree on much," said the Rev. Michael Livingston, president of the National Council of Churches, "we do agree on the need to protect God's creation. It has become clear that global warming will have devastating impact on those in poverty around the world."

The Rev. Richard Cizik, vice president for governmental affairs for the National Association of Evangelicals, said 84 percent of evangelicals support mandatory limits on greenhouse gases. He said it is not a matter of political persuasion but "of moral leadership."
