Social Justice Forum: Eco-Justice Series

April 30 @ 9:15 am - 10:15 am

OUR PLANET IN CRISIS
with Will Steger and J. Drake Hamilton

Even die-hard warm-weather fans admit that sixty degree temperatures in February in Minnesota are just plain crazy. Unseasonably warm weather is having serious repercussions at all levels: the loss of snow-dependent businesses; disrupted flowering patterns that are wreaking havoc on insect pollinators; the growth of deadly algae in our lakes; and a loss of countless plant and animal species—the so-called ‘sixth extinction’ that author Elizabeth Kolbert attributes to human causes.

We can no longer look away, but as a people of faith, how do we respond?

The Eco-Justice Team series on water, climate and energy will address both the problem and potential solutions so we leave the forum energized and hopeful.

April 30: WILL STEGER: Eyewitness to Climate Change

May 7:  J. DRAKE HAMILTON: Clean Energy Solutions at the Scale of the Climate Problem
