The human rights challenge of our time

Climate change has repercussions for many of the issues we face today, from the well being of our children, to global poverty, to economic growth. Caring for God's creation is one of the greatest humanitarian and moral challenges of our time, and too often we have interpreted God's invitation to subdue and take charge of creation (Genesis 1:28) as license to abuse it.

As United Methodists, we are called to seek a new lifestyle rooted in justice and peace wherein all God's children share in creation's abundance.1

The destruction of the earth's environment is the human rights challenge of our time. - Archbishop Desmond Tutu
