Discerning and Deciding: Bold Climate Action
Updated: Jun 13
According to a recent report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the world has less than three years for its greenhouse gas emissions to peak and head into a relatively rapid decline.
Careful discernment is needed on where people of faith and conscience should place their time and energy in organizing for the policies that will lead us to a more just and hospitable world.
Should the focus be on climate legislation currently being considered in Congress? Should the focus be upon presidential emergency powers?
Some answers to these questions are discussed in a webinar held on Thursday, June 9, 2022 (now on YouTube) featured three leaders in the climate movement:
Keya Chatterjee, Executive Director of U.S. Climate Action Network
Miranda Ehrlich, Federal Field Director for the Sierra Club
Jean Su, Energy Justice Director for the Center for Biological Diversity
