RESOURCES FOR ACTION ON CLIMATE CHANGE (June 2020)
IMYM Climate Minute on FCNL website
Coordinated Individual Action to a Carbon Price (5 minutes/month)
cclusa.org/mcc Citizens’ Climate Lobby’s Monthly Calling Campaign (works really well for working together as a faith community or an interfaith community)
For Measuring Success
SEEK (EPA & ASU partnership – covers USA – interfaith collaboration supported) The Sustainable Energy, Education and Knowledge-Sharing (SEEK) project helps congregations and non-profits take practical steps toward sustainable energy stewardship. Trained students support your community to benchmark energy usage patterns in your house of worship, community centers, and offices, SEEK helps you go further.
ENERGY STAR Using a free, user-friendly, online tool supported by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Turn your utility bills into reports and graphs to see how you’re doing, how you can save money, how to manage your greenhouse gas emissions, then combine your data with that of other faith communities to see the regional impacts of doing this work together.
For Understanding Trade-offs of Policy Impacts
En-ROADS (Climate Interactive) – En-ROADS is a transparent, freely-available policy simulation model that provides policymakers, educators, businesses, the media, and the public with the ability to explore, for themselves, the likely consequences of energy, economic growth, land use, and other policies and uncertainties, with the goal of improving their understanding.

Here is the URL for the article upon which this Guardian article was based:
https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1748-9326/aa7541
This article shows that voluntary family planning “…could provide 16–29% of the emissions reductions suggested to be necessary by 2050 to  avoid dangerous climate change.”

This expresses a concern that the IPCC is not paying attention to human population:
