Eco-Curriculum Review for the title
God's Creation and Global Warming

This is the brief report format.
More detailed reports are also available for this title.

Short Description:   A twelve minute video describing the risks of climate change and why it is a significant religious issue. Produced by the Eco-Justice Working Group of the National Council of Churches of Christ.
Long Description:   This 12-minute video is an easy-to-understand introduction to global warming, its current and potential impacts, and the overwheling ways in which industrial countries contribute to it. The video skillfully places this issue into a faith-based context; it clearly shows why people of faith should respond to this crisis.

A study guide is available at this website: www.coejl.org/Hanukkah/documents/videostudy.php

A PowerPoint of the script is available at this website: www.nccecojustice.org/god%20creation.ppt
