It has long been skeptical of alarmist global warming claims, and opposed economically harmful policies to curb its exaggerated effects. (Click here for earlier, Cornwall-inspired actions featured at Engage Daily.)
Now, it has a new declaration which I urge you to sign: "Protect the Poor: Ten Reasons to Oppose Harmful Climate Change Policies." After detailing the ten reasons, The Cornwall Alliance calls for the following:
- We call on Christians to practice creation stewardship out of love for God and love for our neighbors—especially the poor.
- We call on Christian leaders to study the issues and embrace sound scientific, economic, and ethical thinking on creation stewardship, particularly climate change.
- We call on political leaders to abandon fruitless and harmful policies to control global temperature and instead adopt policies that simultaneously reflect responsible environmental stewardship, make energy and all its benefits more affordable, and so free the poor to rise out of poverty.
Please tell your church, Christian friends and online social networks about Engage Daily. Our impact every day will be that much greater!
