From the Paris Climate Talks to Marrakesh
The nations of the world are gathering in Marrakesh, Morocco seeking action to limit global warming to 1.5º Celsius – the aspiration they agreed to at the historic meeting in Paris nearly one ago.
The statement calls on global leaders to act on their moral obligation to keep global temperatures from rising more than 1.5º Celsius.
We can and must work together as a global community to protect our present and future from the impacts of climate. Peoples across the world – especially in poor and vulnerable communities – are already experiencing the effects of climate change.
Addressing climate change is the greatest moral challenge and opportunity of our time. As people of faith, let us pray for, work with, and urge the leaders of our nation and world to act with the understanding that only together we can solve this crisis.
The signatures of people of faith from all over the world will be delivered to the COP22 President on November 10th by the Chief Imam of Marrakesh.
Show our global leaders that people of faith desire urgent and transformational action on climate change.
