The Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society presents The Climate Change Crisis, a 90-minute live webcast originating from Campbell Hall Episcopal School in North Hollywood, California, in partnership with Bishop J. Jon Bruno and the Diocese of Los Angeles.
The Climate Change Crisis features Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori delivering the keynote address followed by two panel discussions: Regional Impacts of Climate Change and Reclaiming Climate Change as a Moral Issue.
The panel discussions will be moderated by well-known climatologist Fritz Coleman of KNBC 4 news.
