“In the Fight for Climate Justice, We Must Persist” – An Earth Day Service
coordinated by First Parish Environmental Justice Committee
Our guest speaker, Reverend Vernon Walker, will reflect on climate change, the greatest existential threat to human existence and other ecosystems on planet earth. In 2018 a report was released from the UN IPCC that warned that human beings have 12 years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, a degree above which will make the risk of droughts, floods, and extreme heat more severe, and can cause climate related poverty for millions of people. In the fight to keep greenhouse gases to 1.5C by 2030, we must be persistent and believe in the power of people uniting together to accomplish this goal and win this fight for climate justice! There will be opportunity for Questions & Answers with Rev. Walker immediately following the service on the same zoom link.
