Climate Change

The House of Justice does not wish to comment on the specifics of the debate on climate change. However, it is evident that the current defective world order has failed to protect the environment from ruinous damage. Moreover, the House of Justice has observed, in its letter dated 2 March 2013 to the Bahá’ís of Iran, that the deepening environmental crisis is “driven by a system that condones the pillage of natural resources to satisfy an insatiable thirst for more”. Given this reality, it is appropriate for Bahá’í institutions to attempt to address these matters.

You have expressed your concerns to your National Spiritual Assembly. If you feel your personal views on environmental issues do not accord with the plans and activities being pursued by Bahá’í institutions related to these matters, it would be entirely acceptable for you
not to participate in those activities and to, instead, turn your attention to the many other avenues of service open for promoting the interests of the Faith and the well-being of society.
