Prominent Christian and Jewish leaders called this week on the auto industry and their own congregations "to recognize that transportation choices are moral choices" because of "the extraordinary impact they have on God's creation and God's children."
When the Evangelical environmental effort first started, "the message was met with some skepticism and hostility," says Dr. Ron Sider, one of the founders. "But today many leaders agree ... that environmental problems are fundamentally moral and spiritual problems." Some 50 evangelical pastors, scientists and engineers, and heads of businesses and organizations have signed a Call to Action on this issue.
