A Climate for Change

Mar 23, 2015

  Why is it that conservative Christians are more likely to be climate change skeptics than any other religious group in America?  Katharine Hayhoe doesn’t see any reason why science and religion should be mutually exclusive. She’s a leading climate scientist, but she’s also an evangelical who’s married to a minister. She says part of the problem is that we’ve confused politics with faith. Hayhoe is in Utah, and Monday, she joins us to talk about religion, the environment, and bridging the divide between them.

The conservative author and researcher Robert Bryce says the debate over climate change is a hyper-partisan slugfest. So when he talks about our energy future, he starts with this question: if we agree that too much carbon dioxide is bad for the Earth and for us, what do we do about it? In his latest book, Bryce says it’s not less consumption or alternative fuels that will save us. Bryce is in Utah and joins us to explain why he says entrepreneurship and innovation are the way to save ourselves and our world.
