article imageA Valentine asking your politicans to love the planet Special

By Lynn Morris     Feb 9, 2011 in Environment
Policy makers in the US will be receiving Valentine’s cards asking them to love the planet.
Interfaith Power and Light, an organisation that harnesses faith in the fight against climate change is asking congregations to mail senators a Valentine.
The Valentine's cards will ask the politicians to love their neighbours and the planet by supporting policies that curb greenhouse gas emissions.
Susan Stephenson executive director of the Regeneration Project for Interfaith Power and Light explained that climate change is an important topic to discuss in church.
She said: “Climate change should not be a political football. It is a call to be good stewards of God’s creation.”
She added that as many people get their basic values and morals from a faith community this was an appropriate place to discuss climate change and said the message was generally well received when it came from a trusted clergy person.
On Valentine’s weekend Interfaith Power and Light is asking preachers to give sermons on global warming and host discussions on putting faith into action.
Ms Stephenson said: “We are asking people to send a Valentine’s card asking politicians to love the earth and protect the climate.”
