Change is in the Air: from Climate Chaos to Climate Justice

Jan 20 2016 (All day) - Jan 21 2016 (All day)

Change is in the Air Poster

The King’s University invites you to its Winter 2016 Interdisciplinary Studies Conference

CHANGE IS IN THE AIR – in more ways than one. On one hand, the climate is changing. Overwhelming scientific consensus confirms the reality of climate change and warns of the threat it poses to the planet and its human and non-human inhabitants. These warnings have prompted urgent appeals, not simply for changes in action and policy, but also deeper changes in how we think about and imagine our relationship to the creation itself. But change is in the air in other ways too – as vulnerable communities respond to the challenge of global warming, as our reliance on the carbon economy is being questioned, and as political leaders try to hammer out a global climate agreement, change is inevitable.

Retreat on Global Warming as a Moral Issue

Oct 26 2009 - 8:30am - 4:00pm

 “While it’s the industrialized nations of the world that pump out the
most greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming, it’s the
undeveloped nations of the world that feel the first effects of global
warming.”
– World Vision website
“Leaving the world’s poor to sink or swim with their own meagre
resources in the face of the threat posed by climate change is morally
wrong. We do not need climate change apartheid.”
— Archbishop Desmond Tutu
