Climate Change Discussion

Climate Change: A Moral Agenda

David Waskow, Director of the International Climate Initiative for the World Resources Institute, spoke at Kehila May 1 on “Responding to Climate Change: A Moral Agenda.”  He started with quotes from Psalm 145 to indicate that Jewish writings have long respected and valued the environment, then summarized the Paris Climate Conference outcomes, which included Voluntary National Plans for making changes to protect the environment while still promoting development.
