The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's report, Climate Change 2007: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability, outlines the risks that climate change is and will continue to bring to human and ecological communities across the globe. The report suggests it will be the global poor who will face the most devastating effects of global climate change. In light of this report, this paper will endeavor to articulate an understanding of who the global poor are today and how they are increasingly marginalized and disaffected by a warming climate. It will then identify and look to the experience of one Christian community's contextual response to the current suffering of the poor in order to identify the theological principles being lived out in the praxis of the community. After these principles are identified, the paper will evaluate them for appropriation in a theological ethic that can serve as further inspiration for continued and future faith-filled responses to the emerging challenges of climate change on marginalized communities.
