The threats of climate change impact people of every faith, nationality and political persuasion. I’m glad to see news that 250 Rabbis are in lock-step with Pope Francis when it comes to addressing climate change and environmental justice. I join them in celebrating the “Breath of Life,” and stand with them in the conviction that climate change cannot be ignored.

 At <http://stateofbelief.com/segments/the-making-and-effect-of-the-rabbinic-letter-on-climate-crisis/> you can hear  an interview Welton Gaddy, head of the Interfaith Alliance, did with me last week that went on radio this weekend.

The Philadelphia Inquirer (page A-17) ran a full article (with photo) on the Rabbinic Letter on the Climate Crisis, connected to its article on the forthcoming papal encyclical.  It is on-line at <http://www.philly.com/philly/news/nation_world/20150614_Rabbis_issue_a_letter_on_climate_change.html

Articles about the Rabbinic Letter on the Climate Crisis, and/or the text of the Letter itself have now appeared in a number of on-line journals. Each article had a different slant befitting its audience, and almost all the various editors dealt well with the texts and the issues.

Here are the various links: Progressive Catholic, progressive broadly-Christian (mostly Protestant), moderately conservative Israeli, liberal Jewish, progressive Muslim, eco-interfaith.  And if you want the full text and the full list of 342 signers as of this morning, see <https://theshalomcenter.org/torah-pope-crisis-inspire-300-rabbis-call-vigorous-climate-action>
