A Scientist’s View of Climate Change as a Moral Issue
Curt Stager, Author, Educator, Scientist

Scientific explanations of global warming are important sources of information, but the world faith community is also providing inspiration to address its impacts on the planet, the poor, and future generations as a moral issue. Pope Francis has recently called pollution a sin and welcomed non-religious scientists as “precious allies” in the struggle to care for Creation. In that role of “precious ally” Curt Stager will explore some of the long-term effects of global warming and our place in nature from a scientific perspective, and also show how the pope’s encyclical reinforces the science with a call for better stewardship of the planet and its inhabitants.
