Listen to the Climate Change Ads
This is Rev. Wiley Cooper. The Bible teaches that “where there is no guidance, a nation falls.” America is in need of guidance right now. All across the globe, climate change is devastating the lives of millions and contributing to political unrest that threatens our national security.
While creation waits with eager longing and our country looks for leaders willing to meet these challenges head on, too many politicians believe it’s safer to do nothing.
Fortunately our Senator Lindsey Graham is different. Putting country over party, he has become a key supporter of the climate bill in Congress that will create good jobs in our state and aid the least and last among us already struggling with the effects of climate change.
Now more than ever, we need leaders who will look for solutions instead of excuses. Thank you, Senator Graham. Paid for by AmericanValuesNetwork.org.
“Spirit of Power and Love – Mark Schauer”
Hello, This is Fr. Bob Schramm. St. Paul teaches that we should not have a spirit of timidity but of strength and love. Our Congressman, Mark Schauer, showed some strength recently. He voted for the landmark climate bill that will create good American jobs in this district, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and protect God’s creation for our children. When we face big challenges, it’s safe to do nothing; it’s easy to play on people’s fears. It’s harder to explain why a policy will work. Mark knew the big energy companies were spending millions of dollars attacking those who voted yes. But he also knew the bill would be good for Michigan and America. Regardless of party, we need leaders who demonstrate a spirit of strength, not fear. Thank you, Congressman Schauer. Paid for by American Values Network.org.
“Spirit of Power and Love – Tom Perriello”
This the Rev. Neal Halvorson-Taylor. The Apostle Paul teaches that we should not have a spirit of timidity but of strength and love. Yet today, many leaders abandon this Biblical teaching to follow the wide and easy path. But our Congressman Tom Perriello is made of stronger stuff.
Tom knew the big energy companies were spending millions of dollars attacking those who voted for the landmark climate bill. But he also knew the bill would be good for Virginia and America. The climate bill will create good American jobs in our district, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and protect God’s creation for our children.
Tom voted for what was right. Political party doesn’t matter. When we face big challenges, it’s safer to do nothing and easier to play on people’s fears. But what we need are leaders who demonstrate a spirit of power and do what is right. I know Tom and Tom Perriello is that kind of leader. Paid for by AmericanValuesNetwork.org.
“Ronnie Milsap Calls for Truth to Power”
This is Ronnie Milsap. The climate bill before Congress will create good American jobs that cannot be outsourced, strengthen our national security, and protect God’s creation. That’s why church leaders and veterans all across the nation are supporting it. But big energy corporations are investing millions of dollars to convince the American people that this bill will hurt us. The energy front group, the American Energy Alliance, has been saying this bill will increase energy costs up to $3,000 a year. But the MIT study they cite says the Energy Alliance badly misrepresents its results.
You need to ask yourself, who is really looking out for the interests of average Americans – your pastors, churches, military leaders, or the energy corporations who made billions of dollars in record profits when gasoline was $4 a gallon? They have the money, but we have the truth. Find out more at americanvaluesnetwork.org who has sponsored this ad.
“North Dakota Green”
This is Reverend Ron Hildahl
North Dakota families are worried – bills are piling up and high paying jobs are scarce.
The energy bill before Congress creates jobs, reduces dependence on foreign oil and protects God’s creation.
That’s why a huge coalition of churches and military leaders support it.
Congressman Earl Pomeroy has always fought for North Dakota jobs. And today, the stakes are high.
By supporting this bill, Earl Pomeroy would bring four thousand jobs to North Dakota – high-paying jobs that can never be outsourced to India or China.
It means a clean environment for all and new income streams for our farm families.
Congressman Pomeroy is a leader who understands what North Dakota needs – and right now, we need jobs and independence from foreign oil. Find out more at americanvaluesnetwork.org. Paid for by American Values Network.
“Light into Darkness”
The Gospel of John teaches that evildoers operate in dark places, hiding their deeds. But those who do what is right, do so in the light.
As Congress begins work on climate legislation to protect God’s creation, a great assembley of church leaders are backing a bill that supports working families and the poor and provides rebates directly to consumers to offset rising energy costs.
But Southern Company, the energy conglomerate that owns Alabama and Georgia Power, has unleashed an army of lobbyists to fight the faith community and threaten law makers working to provide resources to American families.
Why? Because Southern Company wants all the money instead.

Script for Ad Airing in 8 States:
This is Rev. Joel Hunter. As our seas rise, crops wither, and rivers run dry, God’s creation cries out for relief.
The failure to answer the calling to be good stewards has consequences. The destabilizing effect of climate change will hit the poor the hardest, and it also threatens our national security, our economic prosperity, and our children’s future.
Yet no matter how bleak things appear, redemption is always possible.
So people of faith are speaking out… a great assembly of Christian pastors and churches and America’s military leaders are demanding that Congress passes a climate bill that creates jobs, reduces our dependence on foreign oil, and especially protects vulnerable families and communities at home and abroad who are most hurt by climate change.
The time for action is now. Please join the chorus of the faithful by calling 877-88-CLIMATE to learn more and be connected to your Member of Congress. Paid for by American Values Network.org.
