WASHINGTON, May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- In an unprecedented show of unity amidst worldwide discord, Muslims, Christians and Jewish religious leaders today announced a pact to fight global warming together for the sake of creation.

Their joint statement, delivered to the White House and Congressional leadership, calls for immediate action including mandatory limits on greenhouse gas emissions. "An Interfaith Declaration on the Moral Responsibility of the U.S. Government to Address Global Warming" comes on the heels of the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change's most recent report that makes clear the serious risks of delay, noting that without action emissions could double from current levels by 2030.

"This is an historic moment when Jews, Christians and Muslims stand together in solidarity with a shared sense of moral purpose on global warming. We accept the overwhelming scientific evidence which forecasts extreme consequences for the Earth and all its inhabitants if we fail to act," the statement reads.
