The Carbon Confession organization provides a way for individuals to acknowledge, confess and implement personal lifestyle and societal changes. For too long, Christians and Jews have ignored the overwhelming evidence of humankind’s unsustainable use of planet earth. Carbon Confession provides an opportunity to change from carbon addiction to a sustainable lifestyle. The carbon confession is a 7-step path leading from acknowledgment, confession of carbon addiction to action. For more information, please visit www.CARBONCONFESSION.com. (Note: website not up as of April 18, 2013, as this project is in the startup mode)

For decades the majority of the Jewish and Christian faiths have ignored or denigrated the overwhelming scientific proof of humankind’s unsustainable use of planet earth. We recognize the need for a new and unique educational effort regarding carbon dependency. The faithful are accountable to Scripture, and Scripture requires God’s followers to be responsible for earth care. CARBONCONFESSION.COM provides a way for the faith-based individual to acknowledge, confess and implement personal lifestyle and societal changes.
CARBONCONFESSION.COM provides the Jewish and Christian an opportunity to change from carbon addiction to a sustainable lifestyle.
The concept for CARBONCONFESSION.COM originated in 2012 with a group of individuals from the National Religious Coalition on Creative Care (NRCCC) seeking a way to better address the faith-based community and help fellow believers understand their environmental sin, Scriptural call to change, and with confession and action enjoy being in the light of God’s calling for creation care.
Strengths and Competencies
The Jewish and Christian faiths are about 75% of the US population. This major group is open to learning and applying their faith to life action. They meet routinely to discuss moral and ethical fundamentals in context with their faith-based guidance and doctrine. Our news to these groups is:
1. The strength of their faith will be tested by a growing number of daily life challenges caused by climate change
2. Their faith informs and commands them to live a life of sustainability on and with planet Earth, and
3. Their actions are witness and testimony to their love of God and that special friendship
CARBONCONFESSION.COM endeavors to address this group with references to scientific fundamentals and earth care ethics. The strength of the effort rests in the Scriptural premise for humankind’s responsibility for renewing God’s creation for future generations. The cause is clearly stated by reading the seven point carbon confession posted on CARBONCONFESSION.COM website.
Products and Services:
CARBONCONFESSION.COM is a website-based on example-based education but centers on the Jewish and Christian faith-based calling for commitment to living sustainably and efforts to healing the earth.
The website and direct mission to the faith congregation process is concentrated on the carbon confession. It is a 7-point single-page path leading from faith-based acknowledgement, confession and action. We will use a video YouTube reference; ongoing calendar of faith-based environmental activities; list of environmental action websites; inspired statements with images; a map of carbon confessor dots by zip code, and stories of the changed benefiting from the 7-point process.
Overcoming Barriers to Awareness
We will directly contact US and Canada faith-community denominations, synods, churches and synagogues as well as environmental site leaders to communicate our effort and site reference. We will consider and proceed with many marketing and promotional paths to grow awareness.
CARBONCONFESSION.COM believes in the power of the uniqueness of the individual when empowered by a personal relationship with the Creator. It is this empowerment by faith that changes the human life to living sustainably on earth. Change is required to address the challenges of human caused climate change and the faith-based community should not follow but lead. To overcome the barrier to awareness caused by the false teachings of some faith community leaders we believe God will convict their hearts to new understanding and change. We pray for them to be directed by Scripture and informed by science.

We specifically recognize the need for carbon misuse confessions and commitment to change.
