This is a bit late—the event took place last Thursday. (Trekkers learned about it from George Sapien, a member of the Holy Name of Mary Parish that sponsored the event.) The featured speaker, Joshua Fisher, is an environmental scientist who cut his teeth studying climate change in the Amazon, what he called “the lungs of the planet.” Currently a project scientist of the Water & Carbon Cycles Group, Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Fisher presented a brief (50 minutes) summary of what is known about climate change in a graphics filled presentation that was entertaining (not geeky.) He lightened his talk with periodic apologies for scientific viewpoints at odds with the Catholic Church (the kindly host of the event), including population control and evolution. 85 more words
O God, who hast promised that thou wilt never be absent from thy Church unto the end of the world, and that the gates of hell shall never prevail against it; graciously make thy strength perfect in our weakness and keep us steadfast in the love of thy Holy Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with the in the unity of the Holy Ghost, one God, world without end. Amen.
