Caring for Creation, Caring for the Poor: A Biblical, Scientific, and Economic Perspective on Climate and Energy Policy.
E. Calvin Beisner, Ph.D., is spokesman for the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation and an author and speaker on the application of the biblical world view, theology, and ethics to economics, government, and environmental policy. He has testified as an expert witness on the ethics and economics of climate and energy policy before congressional committees, delivered a paper on the subject for the Pontifical Institute for Justice and Peace, and lectured on it for five of the International Conferences on Climate Change. He has published over ten books and hundreds of articles, contributed to or edited dozens of others, and been a guest on television and radio programs. A former seminary and Christian college professor and church planter, he has spoken to churches, universities, conferences, and other groups around the country for nearly thirty years.
Dr. Beisner will discuss arguments about the causes, magnitude, and risks of climate change. He will review the human contribution to global warming and argue that it is likely to be more beneficial than harmful. He will also address expectations that the Trump Administration will pursue a very different course on climate and energy than the Obama Administration and suggest how Christians, well informed by Biblical worldview as well as sound science and economics, should approach the issue.
