The global catastrophe we call Climate Change is rapidly heading our way. It will happen much sooner and be far worse than is generally understood...and can only be solved / managed GLOBALLY (by Global Citizens). Tragically, the majority of greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction efforts are somewhere between frivolous and fraudulent. GHG reduction efforts at U.S. universities are particularly lamentable. Universities engage is "green" activities that essentially allow for business as usual. As a Jesuit institution, SLU is well positioned to discuss "Creation Resurrecting" (vs. "Creation Crucifying") activities (centering on service, justice, sacrifice, integrity & courage). Universities must not only prepare students for the future, but also do what they can to ensure that future.
