Two powerful messages on Climate …

This one from Ambassador Daniel Speckhard, head of Lutheran World Relief. Quotable:

Both the Bush and Obama administrations have agreed that compassionate foreign aid to the poor overseas—through disaster relief, improved health, and sustainable development—is the right thing to do and a critical part of our national security, complementing investments in defense and diplomacy. Because promoting stable and responsible societies and governments promotes our interests as well as our values, instability and assault on the poor and vulnerable unleashed by climate change requires us to respond

He will be part of our Coming Together in Faith on Climate gatherings this week. (There’s still room for your to join us on Thursday evening!)
Also participating will be Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. Here is one of the most powerful moral voices you’ll ever hear addressing Congress … (AKA “the hall of mammon!”)
