Last week the EPA held public hearings on its new emissions standards for coal-fired plants. Among the environmentalists and the energy lobbyists and CEOs were members of a variety of faith-based environmental action groups.

Many Christian conservatives among their ranks defy common convention on the politics of climate change. These groups feel called to act on climate change and that their religion supports environmentalism through the bible. 

Are your parishes and places of worship acting on climate change?

Guests:

  • Beau Underwood, senior director of policy and communications at Sojourners
  • Rev. Mitch Hescox, president and CEO of the Evangelical Environmental Network

*This is the first segment in the August 7 edition of The Source, which airs at 3 p.m. on KSTX 89.1 FM.
