Bangladesh: the Canary in the Coal Mine

Adaptation to changing weather patterns is critical, particularly for countries like Bangladesh and India, where World Renew walks alongside the poorest of the poor. This video is the first of a series being released about Bangladesh and its precarious position due to the extreme weather hazards that are occurring. Today the Rohingya refugees are also desperately compromised by the pending monsoon rains and cyclone season - two events which are typically intensified by rising temperatures.

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of traveling to Ottawa to attend a conference organized by World Renew on food security, environmental stewardship, and small-scale farmers. I’d like to share with you one of the things that particularly stood out to me after attending this conference.

Earth Day 2015: Join the Conversation

In 2012, the Christian Reformed Church in North America (CRCNA) adopted a position statement on climate change, affirming that it is the near-scientific consensus that human activity has been a primary driver of global warming and that the Church has a religious, moral, and ethical responsibility to respond.
