Can science and religion agree on the most urgent issues of conservation and climate change? The Cottonwood Public Library and the Northern Arizona Climate Change Alliance (NAZCCA) are hosting a presentation and discussion to explore the details of this question.


Dr. Roy May and Dr. Stefan Sommer will present the current issues being brought about by climate change and our spiritual and human responsibilities in the face of this global crisis. Dr. May holds a Master of Divinity degree from the Perkins School of Theology (Southern Methodist University) and the PhD in theology from the VU University in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. For 30 years he taught theology and ethics at the Latin American Biblical University in San Jose, Costa Rica. Dr. Sommer is the Director of Education at the Merriam-Powell Center for Environmental Research at Northern Arizona University.
