URGENT: Take Action TODAY for Climate Justice

All creation is the Lord's, and we are responsible for the ways in which we use and abuse it.  Water, air, soil, minerals, energy resources, plants, animal life, and space are to be valued and conserved because they are God's creation and not solely because they are useful to human beings. God has granted us stewardship of creation. We should meet these stewardship duties through acts of loving care and respect.
The Book of Discipline of The United Methodist Church, Social Principles, ¶ 160)

United Methodist Women has long called for sound and rigorous stewardship of the earth and environmentally responsible lifestyles and policies that preserve creation for the benefit of present and future generations.

Please contact your Senators this week and let them know that as a member of United Methodist Women you are deeply concerned about Mr. Pruit's record of:  

  • Rejecting the Federal Government's responsibility to ensure clean air and clean water for all.
  • Suing the EPA 14 times to stop environmental regulations essential to protecting children from toxic mercury pollution, reducing air pollution in national parks and cleaning up polluted waterways.
  • Rejecting the scientific consensus that climate change is occurring, and that greenhouse gases emitted by human activities are the primary driver of global warming.
  • Rejecting the Clean Power Plan that limits carbon emissions and regulates methane emission, the largest drivers of climate change.
  • Putting the interests of the fossil fuel industry and corporations over women and children. Mr. Pruitt has received more than $300,000 in campaign contributions from the fossil fuel industry and has sent letters on behalf of the oil and gas industry during his tenure as Oklahoma Attorney General.

Urge your Senators to vote against Mr. Pruitt's confirmation. Here's how you can reach your Senators:
