Oklahoma and Climate Change


The links provided are for articles I have written recently on issues related to climate change and Oklahoma.

The first is a guest blog that I wrote for the Church World Service. It is a first in a series they are publishing on climate change from a faith perspective by persons from various states within the United States.

Oklahoma: A Climate of Denial and a Climate of Silence on Climate Change

The second is an opinion editorial in support of the new EPA Clean Power Plan that was published by The Oklahoman newspaper.

New EPA Rules Will Benefit Oklahomans

Please speak out and act for systemic change to address climate change in your context. Peace, social justice, and ecological sustainability are not possible in the long run if we cannot avoid catastrophic climate disruption.
