Energy Conservation

The Union of Concerned Scientists ranks home heating, hot water, air conditioning, and household appliances and lighting as the next most harmful consumer activities after transportation and food consumption.  In a 2001 statement to the President of the United States*, prominent religious leaders said the following:

“The Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof” (Ps 24:1). In light and wind, in land and water, energy resources are abundant gifts for human well-being from our creator God. But because we are called to “till and to tend the garden” (Gen 2:15), we have a moral obligation to choose safe, clean and sustainable sources of energy to protect and preserve God’s creation."
