350.org Statement on the Release of the Islamic Declaration

CAIRO -

350.org Global Communications Manager, Hoda Baraka, issued the following statement on the release of the Islamic Declaration on climate change:

“Today’s Islamic Declaration reinforces the moral call for climate action and the need to move away from fossil fuels and towards a clean energy future. Coming on the heels of a historic letter from the Pope to millions of Catholics around the world, today’s declaration further underlines the reality that communities of faith are joining the global call for climate action in force. With the end of the fossil fuel era approaching, we have a moral responsibility to expedite the transition to clean energy protecting those most impacted from the climate crisis. The declaration’s call for divestment reinforces the moral impetus behind the fast-growing movement to divest from fossil fuels and helps expand its reach in faith communities around the world.”
