Climate scientist and evangelical Christian Katharine Hayhoe says one of the most important ways to fight climate change is to talk about it. And she wants to show people how.

Facts and statistics, she says, aren’t enough to shift climate deniers' hearts and minds about our changing planet. In fact, overwhelming people with data can increase polarization. Shaming, too, doesn’t work, and fear can result in inaction. Finding shared values, though, may help generate collective energy to avert environmental disaster. Katharine Hayhoe joins us this Friday at noon to explain how talking about climate change can alter the future.

Airs: Friday, Dec. 10, noon MT and Saturday, Dec. 11, 11 a.m. MT.

Katharine Hayhoe’s book is Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World [Amazon|Indiebound|Bookshop].
