Faith Based Ocean Resources for the Season of Creation

Creation Justice Ministries Program & Communications Coordinator Amanda Robinson recently shared faith based ocean resources for the Season of Creation. These resources were timed to coincide with the release of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate. This report explores the adverse impacts of climate change on fisheries, coral reefs, coastlines, and the people that rely upon them.

As stated by Amanda Robinson, "The findings in this report indicate that there will be serious impacts on all of God's marine creation unless humans take swift action to reduce emissions. These impacts include unprecedented sea level rise, changing behavior and migration patterns for marine life, stronger and more frequent tropical storms, flooding, food insecurity, and impaired water quality. Simply put, the global ocean is responsible for 97% of all water on planet Earth. We have a moral responsibility to do everything in our power to safeguard this vast and magnificent, yet limited, gift of God's creation."
