Rock Ethics Institute – Climate Change 2

I will be moderating a panel discussion in two weeks on the biblical creation narratives and climate change. It is part of a series by PSU’s Rock Ethics Institute:

Rock Ethics Institute – Climate Change. It should be a good series. It will be focused primarily upon Christian interpretations, which is unfortunate, but it is Pesach which makes it impossible for our local rabbi to attend. If you are in the area, please come by!

A collaborative program that seeks
greater visibility and understanding of the
ethical dimensions of climate change.

Climate Change/Climate Justice: The Role of Religion

Global warming is a universal moral challenge. This series of panels and screening of An Inconvenient Truth are designed to open up a dialogue on the role of religion in responding to the challenge of climate justice.

    This sounds fascinating.

    Please could you let me know of any outcomes. Will they be published somewhere? I’d love to read the proceedings.

    BTW: I am based in South Africa and this is just as relevant here in my faith community.
