Earth Justice Guest Speaker featuring Stephen A. Jurovics, Phd, author of Hospitable Planet: Faith, Action, and Climate Change.  Refreshments served. 

Dr. Jurovics believes that the faith community can have a profound effect on the course of the climate change debate, because arguments from the faith perspective are essentially uncontestable: that is, powerful special interest groups who continually question the science and the economic feasibility of ameliorating measures will be unlikely to challenge a teaching of Jesus, a verse in Deuteronomy, or UU Core Principles. Arguments from both the faith and science perspectives could push this country to full engagement with this issue. Information about the book may be found at the website hospitableplanet.com.

Dr. Jurovics holds a B.S. and M.S. from Columbia University and a Ph.D. from the University of Southern California. Event contact: Denise Frizzell, .
