Background

Last
December, representatives of 196 nations gathered in Paris and reached an
international agreement on climate change. 
However, t
he current commitments to reduce emissions allow
an extremely dangerous 2.7°C increase.  Even
the goal governments gave themselves is fixed around 2°C.  Experts & activists are arguing for a
vital push for 1.5°C as a true upper limit. 
This seemingly small difference would prevent well over 100 million people
from losing their homes due to droughts, floods, sea level rise and devastating
storms. 
The worldwide
interfaith community played an important role in making the agreement
happen.  Now, we need to continue to
provide support and encouragement for world leaders to commit to 1.5o
C.
