I've been trying to keep this blog focused on the topic I intended, but once in a while another environmental issue creeps in.
Today, Alan Scarfe had much to say about climate change, and the role faith communities have in addressing it, in an op ed in the Des Moines Register.
One of the things that interested me most about this article (other than it being written by a dear friend who has only recently become engaged with environmental issues) was the idea of a coalition of energy and farm interests. Too often climate change has caught the imagination of church folks, but without the understanding of its connection to other issues.
The Iowa Farmers' Union - one of the partners of Iowa Interfaith Power and Light - has some interesting things on energy and agricultural issues on their site.
