Why Does the Church Care about Climate Change?
April 15 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
What if we could tell ourselves a new story about climate change and, in doing so, alter our relationship to our planet?
With larger, longer wildfire seasons, accelerated species extinction, ocean acidification, and sea-level rise, it’s increasingly clear that climate change isn’t something that’s about to happen it’s here. While the laundry list of problems wrought by climate change is well known, few talk about how our moral beliefs about nature have led us to the brink.
In this presentation, ethicist Dr. Brian G. Henning discusses how global warming itself is not the only problem it’s a symptom of a larger issue concerning how we conceive of ourselves and our relationship to the natural world.
