Human actions and their impact on the environment are detailed in the recently released report of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. While many aspects of the report deserve our prayers and prayer-inspired actions, one that stood out to me was that a rise of only a little over 3 degrees of earth’s temperature can result in the possible extinction of almost 30 percent of species within the next hundred years.
