Through Crises Towards Transformation: Human Impact I: Drought, Flood, Sea
Sunday, April 11, 2021, 5 PM EDT
Examples of human impact from low-elevation islands to the Andes Mountains, and from Bangladesh to Louisiana.
How can we mitigate the climate disasters affecting our global brothers and sisters?
Climate disruption has not only created hurricanes, tsunamis and floods that hit the headlines around the world, but continue to impact human populations in a variety of ways. Long droughts have prompted migrations of villages and tribes, while rising sea levels necessitate the permanent evacuation of communities from low elevation islands to higher ground.
Our presenter for the April webinar exploring the human impact of climate change and climate disruption is Dr. Richard Waugh of Wisconsin University. In his research and travels, Dr. Waugh has witnessed climate-caused difficulties in various cultures around the world. Prior to retiring as Professor Emeritus in 2020, Dr. Waugh taught classes on climate change, social geography and human impact, and led an annual extended field trip to key geographic locations with his students. He brings personal experience as well as professional insight to the conversation.
Dr. Waugh is also a long-time elder in Community of Christ, and did his doctoral thesis on geography and sacred space. He has served as a pastor and as a counselor to leadership in the former district and mission center. His articles have been published in The Herald and in the JWHS Journal.
