The unjust nature of climate change

Today’s worship is part of our Summer Series, “Coping with the Climate Crisis.”

Climate change is inherently unjust. The rich people and rich countries that have benefited from consumption of fossil fuels have contributed disproportionately to causing climate change. The poor people and poor countries that have the fewest resources to adapt suffer disproportionately from the consequences.

What can we do as residents one of the rich countries? Make conscious choices to alter the imbalance, as voters, as investors, as consumers, and as members of organizations and congregations.
