The Climate Change Crisis Webcast


Join us for a viewing of The Climate Change Crisis, presented by the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society on March 24. This event (via webcast) will address one of the most significant topics in today's society and will feature panelists well-versed in the critical areas of the environment and the impact of climate change on our world.
 
Please join Bishop Bud Cederholm for a viewing of the webcast at the diocesan offices, 138 Tremont St in Boston, on the 24th at 2 pm. There is no cost and no need to register. We hope to see you there! Otherwise, the webcast will be found at www.episcopalchurch.org.
 
The 90-minute live webcast will originate from Campbell Hall Episcopal School, North Hollywood, CA. In partnership with Bishop J. Jon Bruno and the Diocese of Los Angeles, The Climate Change Crisis will begin 11 am Pacific/2 pm Eastern.
 
The forum will be moderated by well-known climatologist Fritz Coleman of KNBC 4 television news. Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will present the keynote address. Two panels, each 30 minutes, will focus on specific areas of the climate change crisis: Regional Impacts of Climate Change; and Reclaiming Climate Change as a Moral Issue.
