Evangelical Scientists Urge Congress to Take Action on Climate Change

sunsetThis month, more than 200 evangelical scientists signed a letter calling on Congress to take action on climate change. The letter, which refers to scripture, urges Congress to pass effective legislation to reduce carbon pollution during this Congress.

The scientists, all evangelical Christians, point to their faith as well as to science.

“Christian scientists across the country view science as a gift from God, a tool to discover the mysteries of Creation.” said Dr. Larry Louters, Professor of Chemistry at Calvin College.

Dr. Dorothy Boorse, from Gordon College, said “Three basic principles in the Bible should underlie our concern about climate change,” she said. “Care for the poor, pursuit of justice, and stewardship of creation.”
