False Solutions: Climate Policies That Fail
Under public discussion and legislative consideration are an array of climate policies that vary widely in their goals and potential. Some of these policies have been described as false solutions by climate activists and policy analysts. These policies are deemed to fail when it comes to what is required by the moral demands of science, equity, and justice. Will a given policy actually reduce carbon emissions to the extent needed? Will it place unequal burdens on particular communities along the lines of race and poverty? Does it allow for extractive industries to essentially continue their present practices? Join us to learn what faith communities should know in deciding which policies do and do not reflect core values. Our featured presenters will include:

-Ashley Nicole McCray, Indigenous Environmental Network

-Arjun Krishnaswami, Natural Resources Defense Council

-Gabriela Sarri-Tobar, Center for Biological Diversity
