Town Hall Meeting: Spirituality and the Atmospheric Sciences--Ethics and Climate Change from the Perspective of Religion and Faith

Tuesday, 12 January, 6:00–8:00 p.m.; Room 240/241

While science can tell us what is true, it cannot answer the question of what is moral and just.  Representatives from major faith groups will discuss the moral implications of the science of climate and climate change, and how we should frame our responses to the science.  There will a special representative from the Roman Catholic Church to discuss the moral implications expressed in the Pope’s recent encyclical on climate change.  Presentations will be relatively short allowing for maximum discussion with and between AMS attendees on how they are spiritually called to respond.

For additional information, please contact Tim Miner (tel: 571.212.0804).
