I don’t talk about religion much in these blogs but my faith motivates me. I am a Christian who thinks fighting climate change is the most important issue of our age. A bunch of other folks in my denomination (United Methodist) feel the same. Our churches have Creation Care committees where members can involve themselves in local efforts to ameliorate climate change. In my church we have cut down our waste stream by using real plates and silver ware for many church dinners. The food scraps go to hogs or chickens. Several church members compost with me. I’m always finding garbage by my tire when I come out of church. We also want to put solar panels on our fellowship hall and further reduce our carbon footprint.
