The study of climate justice shows how the weather, ocean levels, and other conditions of climate like drought, storms and ocean temperature affect people, and how those affects are magnified for the poor. As noble as our individual efforts are to “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle”, we need to work together to find causes and solutions that will protect the earth for future generations. Doing everything possible to diminish the speed of climate change is an act of justice toward marginalized people, and toward future generations.
January 21 – What We Love Can Be Saved – Rev. Amy Beltaine
How are you the change you wish to see in the world? Step by step, the longest march can be won. It takes many drops of water to turn a mill. The struggles around the world for justice, peace and against violence can be overwhelming. It is easy to feel small. Where do we find the strength to carry on?
