The Rev. Sally Bingham of Interfaith Power and Light is among those quoted in the Salt Lake City Tribune’s story about viewing climate change as a moral issue. Judy Fahys writes:
“If we profess a love for God, for each other, our neighbors as ourselves, shouldn’t we be protecting what God loves, which is the creation?” asked Sally Grover Bingham, an Episcopal priest and founder of the Interfaith Power & Light project.
Speaking recently at the University of Utah law school’s Stegner Symposium, Bingham described global warming as the most pressing moral issue of our times.
It’s a problem for people of faith in the developed world when they recognize their own oversized appetite for fossil fuels, while their pollution poses the greatest threat to people in the undeveloped world. And, while the world’s wealthiest people are measuring the consequences of global warming in economic terms, the world’s poorest will be paying with their lives.
