Ruth Valerio: Why Climate Change Matters

Climate change is a global problem, but one which affects us unequally. For example, those who live in the industrialised global north have contributed disproportionately to the problem, whereas the residents of the global south are far more likely to suffer the harmful consequences of climate change. Therefore, for Christians, concerned with issues of inequality and social justice, climate change has to be high on our agenda.

In this talk Dr Ruth Valerio takes the fact of climate change as a given. The scientific evidence for rising global temperatures as a result of human activities is now overwhelming. She shows that with this now near-universal acceptance of the facts how the language of climate change has shifted from global warming to climate change and more recently embraces the term ‘climate emergency’.

 

This is a talk from Science and Faith in the Second City, a Scientists in Congregations-funded project from ChaplaincyPlus.
