for now, for us and for all future generations.
While we ignore the possibility of climate change, the developing world is already feeling the effects of the changing seasons. No longer able to rely on the rains, their time for planting is shortened and the time for harvesting does not come in cycle. Our brothers and sisters of the two thirds of the world still trying to develop and feed and water their people suffer as a result of our way of life. All development efforts over the last years will be lost as the climate dominates all the human effort.
Can we adapt?
How do we adapt?
What does Christ ask us to do, and be, for the sake of the planet and all its people?
