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.
