Evangelical Environmental Network applauds the Growing Climate Solutions Act

  • Published on June 14th, 2020

Since the earliest Biblical records, Christians have been called to care for and tend God’s creation (Genesis 2:15). Many of our nation’s farmers are faithful Christians who believe in this biblical calling but have found it difficult due to falling incomes and low crop prices. The Growing Climate Solutions Act provides a way for the agricultural community, especially family farms, to increase income, enrich soil, sequester carbon, and to be empowered as part of the climate solution.

The Act establishes a Verifier Certification Program, providing a uniform carbon measuring method that ensures a fair price and an accountable carbon market.

The Evangelical Environment Network, our Board of Directors, and our millions of supporters, many of whom are farmers, support The Growing Climate Solutions Act and applaud the efforts of Senators Mike Braun (R-IN), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Lindsay Graham (R-SC) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) for introducing it.

About the Author

EEN is a biblically based ministry dedicated to the care of God's creation. EEN is made up of both individual members who believe in and support our vital ministry and major evangelical organizations who work with EEN to help equip, educate, disciple, network, and mobilze the church for the care of God's creation. Creation-care means caring for all of God's creation by stopping and preventing activities that are harmful (e.g. air and water pollution, species extinction), and participating in activities that further Christ's reconciliation of all of creation to God. Doing creation-care fills us with the joy that only comes from doing the will of God.
