Climate is about us: food, water, and energy in dynamic relationship, either enriching or encumbering our well-being and biodiversity on Earth. But changes are rapidly underway:
- Sea-level rise brings standing water and flooding in more areas.
- Disease and infestations eat away at crops, uninhibited by previous winter cold snaps.
- Sinkholes occur near the coast and saltwater intrudes into artesian supplies.
- Erratic weather patterns and loss of habitat destroy agriculture and green spaces.
- Fossil fuel pollutants deteriorate life-spans and increase breathing disorders.
The Florida Interfaith Climate Action Network senses the urgency and is calling all religious, spiritual, and conscientious people to come together to take action now. We can live differently on Earth with all of life. Our faith stories, wisdom traditions, and scientific imagination support us. Let’s learn from each other, share our insights, and welcome new collaborative approaches.
