Created by the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society of the Episcopal Church, The Climate Change Crisis will feature 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.

Panelists include:

  • Bishop Marc Andrus, Bishop of the Diocese of California. Climate change has been a focus of his work as a bishop.
  • Princess Daazhraii Johnson, former Executive Director of the Gwich’in Steering Committee, one of the oldest Indigenous non-profit groups in Alaska focused on protection of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. She currently serves on the SAG-AFTRA Native American Committee, the Dancing with the Spirit committee and is active in her community.
  • Dr. Lucy Jones, seismologist with the US Geological Survey and a Visiting Research Associate at the Seismological Laboratory of Caltech since 1983. She currently serves as Science Advisor for Risk Reduction in the Natural Hazards Mission of the US Geological Survey.
  • Mary D. Nichols, J.D., Chairman of the California Air Resources Board. She is responsible for implementing California’s landmark greenhouse gas emissions legislation as well as setting air pollution standards for motor vehicles, fuels and consumer products.

The Climate Change Crisis forum will kick off 30 Days of Action—activities, advocacy and education that will culminate on Earth Day, April 22, 2015.  To receive a daily email with tips for actions during 30 Days of Action, sign up at http://www.episcopalchurch.org/page/30-days-action.
