Bible Study: Taking Care Of God's Earth

The earth does not belong to us – it belongs to God! It is a gift from God, a home that we share with the rest of creation. But with this gift comes responsibility.

RULERS OR STEWARDS?

Read Genesis 1:26–31 and Genesis 2:1–15

How to take action on climate

We are being hit with more floods, more droughts, and more extreme weather -- and for many people that means less to eat and communities pushed into poverty.

Our generation are the only ones with an opportunity to act -- because time is short. This responsibility belongs to us.

Climate talks limp over the line

Climate talks limp over the line

The annual UN Climate Talks - COP24 - ended with a whimper rather than a bang in Katowice, Poland, late on Saturday 15 December after overrunning by more than 24 hours.

Sadly these talks have been characterised by dithering and disruption rather than recapturing the high level of ambition that led to the Paris Agreement on climate change three years ago. They agreed a rulebook to implement the Paris Agreement, so enough progress was made to keep things moving forward. But much more ambition will be needed very soon to limit global warming to no more than 1.5°C.

The rest of us can overcome climate change together without America, but it'd be harder. The US is the world's second largest emitter and President Trump has announced that they're leaving the Paris Agreement, 2015's historic global climate change agreement which every nation signed. Leaving takes three years, so for now, they're still in, and I'm praying God will change hearts and minds so they stay after all.
