Christians, Climate, and Our Culture Around the World

April 9 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm


The next online event hosted by the Affiliation of Christian Biologists (ACB) is scheduled for Tuesday, April 9 at 7:30-9:00 pm EDT (4:30-6:00 pm PDT)! Our guest speaker, Katharine Hayhoe, will speak on “Christians, Climate, and Our Culture Around the World.” Dr. Hayhoe is an atmospheric scientist whose research focuses on understanding the impacts of climate change on people and the planet.  She is a distinguished professor and chair at Texas Tech University, and chief scientist for The Nature Conservancy. She is also the author of the book “Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World.”
At its core, climate change is profoundly unjust. It exacerbates hunger, poverty, and even political instability, disproportionally impacting the most vulnerable people of the world, the very ones we Christians are called to love and care for. As the scientific evidence builds, however, so does the opposition to solutions: they’re impractical, or they’ll harm people, or they’re even too late, some argue. Why is climate change such a difficult problem to solve, and what can we as Christians do about it? Join Katharine Hayhoe as she untangles the complex science behind global warming and highlights the key role our faith and values play in shaping our attitudes and actions on this crucial topic.
Because we are inviting the general public as well as all ASA and ACB members to attend the April 9 event with Katharine Hayhoe, we ask that everyone pre-register first to receive the Zoom link. There is no charge!  We encourage universities and churches to organize watch parties for this event.  Feel free to also invite your friends and family members to pre-register for this event!
