Green The Church Applauds EPA Return to Science
OAKLAND, CA – The EPA relaunched its webpage about climate change. The page had been removed from the site by the Trump administration in 2017. In response to the relaunch of the page, Reverend Ambrose Carroll, founder of Green The Church, released the following statement:
“As a national initiative working with Black churches to expand environmental resilience, Green The Church applauds EPA Administrator Michael Regan for reinstating its climate policy website. The previous administration denied science-based evidence and ignored the unequal impact of climate change on our health and our economy. That was a denial of climate and environmental injustices.
The EPA defines environmental justice as “the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income, with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.” The return of the climate policy website means the Biden Administration is returning to EPA’s promise to protect our communities in a fair and just manner.”
From a year of devastating hurricanes and wildfires and record breaking temperatures, to a mountain of evidence based science, it’s clear climate change is threatening our livelihoods. This extreme weather is devastating our health, environment and climate. Rollback after rollback by the Trump administration have only made matters worse. We cannot continue our current course of inaction - it is #TimeToAct.
From the President, to Congress to local leaders, it is #TimeToAct to #ConfirmClimate.
Green The Church and its thousands of members urge legislators and policymakers to make significant changes to climate discourse.
