Care for God’s Creation

VIDEO OF CHIEF METEOROLOGIST BOB LINDMEIER’S PRESENTATION 

Bob is a member of the Care for God’s Creation team in the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin.

LOPPW is currently supporting Senate Bill 48 that would help utilities to assist home owners to get lead out of their drinking water.  We signed on to this letter initiated by the League of Conservation Voters:  SB48-LETTER (1)

Climate change could push more than 100 million people into poverty in just the next 15 years.  “Climate change hits the poorest the hardest,” says World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim, “and our challenge now is to protect tens of millions of people from falling into extreme poverty because of a changing climate.”  From ELCA World Hunger.
