The Evangelical Environmental Network is just what it sounds like: a ministry of evangelicals, mostly Republicans, who believe climate change is dangerous and worth fighting.
“I’m a Republican, and our organization is designed to reach out to evangelicals who are, by and large, conservative politically as well,” Rev. Mitchell Hescox, president of EEN told CQ Roll Call last week.
