Faith-based lobby works to achieve congressional recognition of climate change.

Share

We hear from Emily Wirzba, policy associate with the Friends Committee on National Legislation, who works on issues with sustainability and the environment for the Quaker faith-based organization. She talks about the an approach to discussing climate change with policymakers involving faith and call to morality. Wirzba also gives advice on how citizens can start a dialogue with their elected officials on environmental issues.

Then we talk with journalist Sina Toossi who recently wrote a story for Foreign Policy in Focus arguing that there is a lobby pushing the bombing of Iran by the US in 2016.
