Summary Quote from Speaker
The world’s impending environmental catastrophes require a fundamental change in human response. The fractured patching of technical and scientific solutions will no longer be able to fully mitigate these enormous challenges: fundamental shifts in human behavior to emphasis values, justice and cultural adaptation are essential. Will this be possible without a faith-inspired appreciation of the environment God has provided?
