Katharine Hayhoe: Does the Bible Mention Climate Change?
January 5, 2017
My friend Katharine Hayhoe is a climate scientist, and an evangelical Christian. She is a great ambassador for climate science to a community that needs a little encouragement.
Dr. Hayhoe and I agree that, contrary to stereotype, one finds a great deal of spiritual and moral conviction in the science community. That spirit of constant search for truth is itself, a fundamentally spiritual quest.
Above, she takes on some fallacious arguments climate deniers use to confuse the religious faithful.
Hayhoe also appears in the video below, one of my favorite “This is Not Cool” pieces, that I presented at the American Geophysical Union in 2015 – on Climate as a Moral Issue.
Below, famous clip of congressional climate denier misusing biblical quotes.
