Evangelical Environmental Network applauds the Growing Climate Solutions Act
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.
