Christians recognize their responsibility to care for-and their right to use-God's creation.
Our stewardship of nature now requires a reliable assessment of the evidence for human­
induced climate change and its likely consequences. But perplexed Christians often ask:

When it comes to discerning the facts, who can we trust?


V. (Ram) Ramanathan, Distinguished Professor, Scripps Institution of
Oceanography at University of California at San Diego, has had a long
and exceptionally distinguished career punctuated with significant
scientific findings that have led to many international policy actions on
climate change. He was a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on
Climate Change which received the Nobel Prize for Peace in 2008, and
currently serves on Pope Francis' Council for the Pontifical Academy
of Science. In 2014, Foreign Policy Journal included him among the top
100 thought leaders of the world. Moreover, he is convinced that the
responses of and alliance with people of faith are vital to the wellbeing
of the earth and its inhabitants. At this event he will share his own journey of discovery,
respond to questions, and invite mutually-respectful discussion.

This event is free and open to the public.
