Faith leaders advocate climate-change measure

Just so people understand, InterFaith has nothing to do with all Faith leaders. They are trying to create a Global Religion.


Leaders of faith communities urged Virginia Sens. Jim Webb and
Mark R. Warner yesterday to endorse far-reaching climate change
legislation as a moral imperative. The 100 clergy members from
Virginia, representing various faiths, said legislation pending in
the Senate should call for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at
least 25 percent below 1990 levels by 2020 and by 80 percent by
2050. The Senate may not take up the legislation this year.


"In affirming the moral need for climate legislation, we are
mindful that this may raise the cost of basic goods," the faith
leaders wrote. "So we also ask that any such legislation include
social safety-net provisions for families that are already
struggling."


The signatures were secured by Virginia Interfaith Power & Light,
an offshoot of the Virginia Interfaith Center, which lobbies in
Richmond, and Greater Washington Interfaith Power & Light.
