Climate Change and the Roman Catholic Church
Join Dr. Joe Plaud as he leads you on a scientific as well as spiritual journey regarding the worldwide crisis we all face as a result of climate change. We will review the nature of the crisis at this time, factors associated with climate change minimization and denial, and systematically addressed the three major ecological paradigms to understanding and dealing with climate change.
The participatory metaphysics of gift as integral Catholic theology provides a direct action plan within Catholic Social Teaching. We see this in action in the encyclical Laudato Si'. Important to point out is that despite the divergent political persuasions which can hinder acknowledgment and action on climate change, as one Body of Christ we can move together to address and mitigate climate change.
