More than 85 evangelical Christian leaders have banded together to form the Evangelical Climate Initiative, a group aimed at mobilizing conservative Christians against climate change.
They kicked off their campaign this month with a television spot and full-page print ads in The New York Times and Christianity Today.
Signatories take the following as their manifesto:
Claim 1: Human-induced climate change is real.
Claim 2: The consequences of climate change will be significant, and will hit the poor the hardest.
Claim 3: Christian moral convictions demand our response to the climate change problem.
Claim 4: The need to act now is urgent. Governments, businesses, churches, and individuals all have a role to play in addressing climate change–starting now.
Another notch in the conservation movement’s bedpost.
