A Climate for Change

  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.

  • On Monday, March 23rd at 7:00 p.m., Katharine Hayhoe will speak on "Faith, Science, and Climate Action" at the First Presbyterian Church in Salt Lake City. [map] [details]

  • On Thursday, March 26th, Hayhoe is back in Salt Lake City for a 7:00 p.m. talk at Clark Planetarium. [map] [details]

Katharine Hayhoe is an Associate Professor in the Public Administration program at Texas Tech University and Director of the Climate Science Center there. She's co-author, along with her husband Andrew Farley, of A Climate for Change [Indiebound|Amazon]
