Facilitating the faith community’s response to climate change.

Climate change is an ever-increasing threat in Nebraska and across the globe. As the impacts of an altered climate continually come to be better understood, the need to act becomes more urgent. Today, many Nebraskans remain uninformed about the facts of climate change, and about its implications for Nebraska’s water supply, agricultural production, economy and public health. There is a great need to communicate, educate and inspire Nebraska citizens to take action on climate change mitigation and adaptation.

The faith community is a vibrant sector of life in Nebraska. Within Nebraska, 90% of residents identify as Christian and worship attendance is high. Jewish, Unitarian, Buddhist and Muslim communities are represented in the state as well. The faith leaders who are committed to revitalizing Nebraska Interfaith Power and Light believe that climate change is the most pressing moral issue of our time. We know that the faith community is uniquely well-suited to respond to the challenges of climate change on human civilization, and we know that the faith community is a powerful voice in our state.

All faith traditions remind us that creation is a gift from God, and that we have been entrusted from the beginning with its care and keeping.  Interfaith Power and Light is bringing the considerable resources of faith to the table in response to the moral challenge presented by the climate crisis.
