Not to add to the burdens of the Stressmas season, but it’s worthwhile to check “becoming educated on climate change” off your holiday to-do list. It’ll do the planet good. And while you’re at it, why not do the local economy good by checking out a holiday bazaar, with proceeds helping to support a local drug and alcohol treatment center?

Universal Climate Justice: We Have No Environmental Problems, Only Moral Ones!
Friday, Dec. 18
The world has been buzzing about climate change and global warming over the past couple of weeks, thanks to a world climate summit in Copenhagen, Denmark. On the heels of that summit, local environmentalists are gathering to discuss the moral responsibilities for people to address climate change in their own lives. To tackle those questions, the First Unitarian Church Environmenal Ministry program is inviting speakers such as Ed Firmage Jr. and activist Tim DeChristopher to a forum.
First Unitarian Church, 569 S. 1300 East, Dec. 18, 7 p.m., 801-582- 7783, SLCUU.org
