Dr. Katharine Hayhoe: Faith, Climate Change, & Our Culture in the U.S.

February 6, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

<span style='font-weight: 400;'>Mounting scientific evidence clearly documents the risks posed by climate change to the poor, the needy, and other vulnerable populations, the very people Christians and other faiths 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, I will discuss potential reasons for these disagreements and the role that shared values may plan in moving us forward past these barriers. This event is organized by the Office of Sustainability and the Department of Geosciences with additional support from </span>the College of Agriculture and Academic Sustainability Programs.
