“Humanitarian Impact I: Drought, Flood, and Sea”
When: Sunday, April 11 at 2pm PT, 3pm MT, 4pm CT, 5pm ET
Where: Online Ministry through Zoom
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.
Join this webinar where Dr. Richard Waugh of Wisconsin University explores the human impact of climate change and climate disruption from low-level islands to the Andes; from Bangladesh to Louisiana. 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.
