Rev. Geoff Browning will speak about the Line 3 Oil Pipeline in a talk-back presentation immediately following Worship on June 27.
The International Energy Agency has stated that no more fossil fuel infrastructure can be built if we are to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees C. Yet, the Canada-based energy conglomerate, Enbridge, has begun construction of the Line 3 oil pipeline that would run from the dirty oil sandpits of Alberta, Canada to Superior, WI some 1,000 miles away. They have designed the pipeline to run through First Nations territory in Canada and Native American land in Minnesota. To stop this threat to the land and water, indigenous water protectors, religious leaders, and climate activists have been on the ground protesting its construction.

Note: Cool Planet donated $500 to GreenFaith to help cover the expenses of religious leaders who attended the protest at the request of indigenous groups.
