Quaker Statement on Climate Change
“It would go a long way to caution and direct people in their use of the world, that they were better studied and knowing in the Creation of it. For how could [they] find the confidence to abuse it, while they should see the great Creator stare them in the face, in all and every part of it?“
—William Penn, 1693
Quaker Earthcare Witness (QEW), the Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO), and Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) have developed a joint statement on facing the challenge of climate change.
We invite all Monthly and Yearly Meetings and other Quaker organizations to join the statement.
The text of the statement and an accompanying letter can be found on our website at: http://www.quakerearthcare.org/article/jan-2015-facing-challenge-climate-change-shared-statement-quaker-groups.
Please read the statement and share it with your Monthly and Yearly Meetings. We hope to continue the discussion and to raise our Quaker voices together!
