We Americans are privileged to live in a highly mobile society; for many of us, some climate change can be mitigated by heating and air-conditioning. But for the poor in the United States, and for many people around the globe, natural disasters and the everyday exigencies of heat, cold, and weather are life-changing experiences that cannot be escaped.

In this study we will examine three clips from the film that lead us to consider questions beyond those of the scientific. In the process of our viewing and discussion, we'll move toward theological and ethical questions of justice: What responsibilities do Christians have toward those most affected by global climate change? What does the Bible say about how we should treat the poor, the helpless, the refugee? How can we promote justice and peace in the face of apocalyptic climate change? An Inconvenient Truth presents a somber vision of a possible future, but it also charges us with the mission to spread the good news that redemption is yet possible.

This study can easily be used with its companion study, "Film: An Inconvenient Truth: Facts about Global Warming." We recommend that you plan a two-week course and use this study the second week.
