Wisconsin Interfaith Power and Light (WIP&L)
We are group of people of all faiths working to reduce the emissions that cause global warming. We are concerned about the effects of climate change, especially the majority which are caused by the burning of fossil fuels. The combustion of fossil fuels not only releases carbon dioxide—the most common of the “greenhouse gases”—but a host of other toxins and carcinogens including nitrogen-oxides, mercury, sulfur-dioxide and particulate matter or soot. WIPL emphasizes that it is also our own future at stake. Studies have linked air pollutants to health problems: respiratory disease, asthma, heart and lung conditions and premature death.
