In the face of those who use religion to deny the worldwide crisis of climate change, climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe, an evangelical Christian, believes that her faith is compatible with science. Important voice that speaks to evangelical Christians.

I've read a number of articles about Katharine Hayhoe. She is a voice of reason among the delusional.

A majority of Americans think global warming is real and that human activity’s a factor, believing in the science behind reports on climate change. But some two-thirds of white evangelical Christians aren’t convinced.

This two-thirds tend to come out to vote in large numbers, their votes have stood in the way of moving quicker on USA policy to revamp it's energy policies. I've seen statements even here on C2 of how their deity will come to in fact save the day, why worry. This woman is important as she IS a white evangelical Christian who not only does understand that thinking but combines her understanding of also the science to merge the two so that the Christians can understand that standing up for policy change and recognizing climate change is not going against their faith.

Boy do we need this woman and her husband. I hope their voices reach many people so they to can add their voice to the winds so people will vote smarter on at least this subject. We can debate longer over some other social issues, but when it comes to climate disruption, we need to move a lot faster on it. Please see my other story if you haven't on what I mean by faster.

Oh Dandelion - I wrote a long and (hopefully) well reasoned comment of several paragraphs - and this benighted artifact just deleted the whole thing! I can't re-write it!

I agree with you utterly. I also am sure it is because the Evangelicals are so Right Wing that they don't believe climate change is real - and halfway through Katharine Hayhoe says so too... excellent piece well worth viewing or reading - thanks Dandelion!

If only conservatives would read or view this with an open mind! This is so rational. One doesn't "believe in" science. Thanks Dandelion.

Noted and watched video. Katharine Hayhoe makes so much sense. "Faith and Science are two sides of the same coin".
Thank you Dandelion.
Sure with I could be marching with people in New York - but my little part might be to sit outside with a sign!

I can't be there either but I intend to do the same Elizabeth. Thanks for watching, she gave me hope that we do have someone that is reaching those who have remained unconvinced.

The fact is that no amount of faith will save this planet. Unless we do it, it won't get done.

This year alone, we have seen torrential rain and stormy wind in SUMMER, and ULTRA MILD weather in WINTER. We've seen earthquakes and their consequences, abnormally excessive rainfall creating massive flooding in many many areas.
