An urgent letter to faith communities from Bill McKibben

Dear brothers and sisters—

This is an impertinent letter. It arrives out of the blue, asking you to do something hard, and to do it quickly, and for all that I apologize. A week ago I wouldn’t have written it. Then we were just beginning a two-week long series of protests outside the White House trying to persuade the president to block construction of a giant pipeline from the tar sands of Alberta to the Gulf of Mexico.
