The Root Causes of Climate Change: Understanding Extractive Industries and their Impacts (Webinar)


Tuesday, October 30, 2018

3pm Eastern Time

The Catholic Climate Covenant and the Inter-religious Working Group on Extractive Industries invite you to join us in a one-hour webinar (Tuesday, Oct. 30th at 3:00 pm eastern) exploring how a faithful and just response to climate change must address the extraction and exploitation on a massive scale of natural resources such as coal, oil and gas, with specific examples from the Southwestern United States and Peru.

This webinar will highlight examples of domestic and international communities negatively impacted by the extraction of the fossil fuels that cause climate change, with specific examples from Southwestern United States and Peru. We also will consider how to avoid the damage inflicted by the fossil fuel industry, such as human rights abuses and environmental degradation, as we work to shift to a renewable energy future.


Presenters:

Marianne Comfort, Sisters of Mercy of the Americas
Franciscan Sister Joan Brown, Director of New Mexico Interfaith Power & Light

Fr. Peter Hughes, Missionary Society of St. Columban, Peru
