Climate Justice: Why It’s the Christian Thing To Do

One of the great prophets of our time is a 16-year-old girl from Sweden named Greta Thunberg. Greta is a climate change activist who, like Jeremiah, is determined to speak truth to power. This last Friday, Greta was in Washington DC to lead a protest at the White House, demanding that US politicians at the very top “Listen to science, and take responsibility.” Like Jeremiah 2,500 years ago, Greta is also an apocalyptic prophet. She warns that [quote], “Our house is on fire … We are facing a disaster of unspoken sufferings for enormous amounts of people. And now is not the time for speaking politely or focusing on what we can or cannot say. Now is the time to speak clearly.”
