Laws to reduce pollution might be less likely in USA

How might someone (possibly a person of faith  if we’re thinking GCSE RS but in reality anybody) reduce the effects of global warming; put a stop to climate change; conserve the environment; protect our world for the next generation?

In list form: pray, protest, sign a petition, give speeches, attend Earth Summits; join a political party, join an environmental pressure group such as Greenpeace, join a charity which cares for the environment like Christian Aid, give sermons in a place of worship reminding people of the importance of our earth… and try to get governments to make laws protecting the environment.

This might be less likely in the USA now that the US President has cut the funding of the Environmental Protection Agency and a Republican politician is contacting colleagues with the idea of getting rid of the Agency completely! It was President Nixon all the way back in 1970 who created the Environmental Protection Agency with the mission of: making sure the US “plays a leadership role in working with other nations to protect the global environment”.

  1. I think that getting rid of the Environmental Protection Agency in the USA is very bad because the US are one of the most powerful countries in the world and they could have a huge impact on saving the planet if they were to take action and not get rid of Agencies such as these.
