As we highlighted in a story last month, faith-based organizations are becoming increasingly vocal and active in the clean-energy movement. While it’s a national phenomenon, our story focused on Minnesota churches installing solar power and taking other steps to reduce their energy impact.
Minnesota faith communities were in the spotlight again this week as part of the 24 Hours of Reality, a series of videos hosted by Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project:
The event featured stories about emerging clean-energy technologies and economic cases for climate action, as well as appeals from celebrities including Jason Mraz and Mark Ruffalo.
Interfaith Power and Light and its Minnesota counterpart were partner organizations for the event. Both are members of RE-AMP, which publishes Midwest Energy News.
