Katharine Hayhoe - September 28, 2019

Christians, Climate, and Our Culture in the U.S.

Mounting scientific evidence clearly documents the risks posed by climate change to the poor, the needy, and other vulnerable populations, the very people Christians are called to love. As the scientific evidence builds, however, so does the vocal opposition to this evidence. In the U.S., much of the disagreement comes from political and religious conservatives. Why is climate change so polarizing to these communities? What makes it so hard to comprehend and accept? Combining basic tenets of the Christian faith with recent findings from the areas of psychology, sociology, and climate science, this lecture presents potential reasons for these disagreements and the role that shared values may play in moving us forward past these barriers.
