INDIANAPOLIS — A federal program to reduce carbon emissions has found fierce opposition among business and political leaders but is garnering support from a surprising source – faith leaders who praise its eternal value.
A coalition of believers wants the state to embrace new rules that require deep cuts in carbon emissions and reverse Indiana’s dependence on coal-fueled electricity.
The Rev. Lyle McKee, chairman of Hoosier Interfaith Power and Light, said the Obama administration’s proposed rules would help address the man-made climate change that is threatening creation.
“We must resolve as a state and nation to move with all deliberate speed away from those practices that degrade the viability of God’s good gifts,” said McKee, a Lutheran pastor whose group has spent more than $200,000 helping Indiana churches convert to solar power to reduce their carbon footprints.
Last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced the new restrictions on carbon pollution, targeting a 30 percent overall reduction by 2030.

They have a higher standard of living than we do. Just think if we gave that kind of money away in Central America, those people would stay home.
You don't need to offer up your thoughts continually. I'm sure you never learned this lesson. Please give this a chance to sink in. You can hear the footsteps of God when silence reigns in the mind.
HEBRON, West Bank — Said Kawasmeh received the order from Israel’s military last week. His two-story house was to be demolished, and his large family had 48 hours to leave.
The reason: Kawasmeh’s son is a key suspect in the brutal kidnapping and killing of three Israeli teenagers whose fates helped reignite the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip.
“I built this house, and I own it,” lamented Kawasmeh, seated on a chair in his empty house. Outside, the family’s possessions lay in boxes and shopping bags, or scattered on the ground. “Why do they want to punish me?”
As Israel pummels Hamas’s infrastructure inside Gaza, it is also trying to prevent attacks originating from the West Bank and Israel — by obliterating the houses of the relatives of Palestinians who allegedly have harmed Israelis. In doing so, Israel’s military has returned to a controversial policy of punitive demolitions that has displaced thousands of Palestinians over the years.
Hald of those people over their literally have gold and silver in their names.
Just because your new around here Nancy don't start picking fights. You are so jelly of me it's embarrassing. You need to try another angle. Some day you might be as good as me.
