According to Oxfam America, which provided support for this issue of Sojourners, people in developing countries are more than 20 times as likely to be affected by climate-related disasters as those of us in the developed world. VVe can take part in the 350 campaign (350.org) to advocate for this December's talks in Copenhagen to produce a real, substantive international treaty on greenhouse gas emissions, with full U.S. sign-on. [...] we can join Oxfam America and other international relief and development organizations in calling for both a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and for financial aid to help the world's most vulnerable people adapt to the rapidly changing environment.
