Show notes

Christianity has a weird relationship to the climate cause. On the one hand, in theory they have more reason than most to care for the Earth — they believe it is God's good creation, after all. On the other hand, quite a number of the faithful are … sceptical. 

Professor Katharine Hayhoe is a rock star in the climate world -- one of the earth's best climate science communicators. She's also a Christian. And she says the chasm when it comes to climate doesn't have to be this deep. 

Whether you’re a believer or doubter in Christianity, this episode is really more about whether you’re a ‘believer’ or ‘doubter’ in climate change … and the things that often lie behind such beliefs (hint: faith is just one factor!) 

But, if you listen to Katharine, climate change shouldn’t be about belief anymore. It’s real. It’s happening. The question now is, what can we do about it?
