‘Changing Climates and Human Formation’
Forrest Clingerman, Ph.D., associate professor of religion, presented a paper, “Changing Climates and Human Formation: The Intersection of Theological Anthropology and Geoengineering” at an international research workshop.
The IASS/PIK workshop, Religious and Spiritual Perspectives on Climate Engineering, was held April 24-28. The Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam, Germany, is a research center and think-tank. PIK is the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. This was the first gathering of scholars to discuss the ways that religion impacts the understanding of climate engineering--the intentional manipulation of the earth's climate system in order to mitigate climate change.
