Interfaith Call for Carbon Pricing

An interfaith call for carbon pricing in Massachusetts has garnered the support of more than 150 faith leaders. Many of those that signed on to the Climate XChange project went to the State House to amplify their plea that the commonwealth put a price on carbon.  Such schemes reduce carbon the primary climate change causing greenhouse gas while supporting a low carbon economy.

As explained by Climate XChange, "People of faith are recognizing that climate change is fundamentally a moral issue, as it jeopardizes the health and wellbeing of much of the world’s population, and that fee on carbon pollution is one of the most effective and just ways to reduce greenhouse gases."
