Scientists agree that the Earth is warming and our climate is changing. Experts predict that changes in agriculture, drought, and flooding will cause the most impact to people on the planet who have the fewest resources to cope and adapt. This session will give a broad overview of climate change and energy issues, and explore how the impacts and solutions to these issues impact people from all around the globe. Using photos, videos, and stories, we will explore global warming as both an environmental problem and a moral issue.
