The United Nations has called for urgent and coordinated action on global climate change, calling it "the most important global challenge to humanity" and stating that "its adverse effects are already a reality in all parts of the world."

- Psalm 24:1

Increased production of greenhouse gases, by-products of fossil fuel use, are believed to a main cause of global warming. Carbon dioxide, methane, and other emissions form a blanket around the earth, trapping heat, raising temperatures, and steadily warming our climate. Each of us contributes to this phenomenon when we use power and heat made from coal, oil, or gas.
