Climate and faith in the public arena (London)
Speaker: Katharine Hayhoe
Date and time: Thursday 16 November
6:30pm for refreshments, 7:15pm welcome and lecture
Venue: All Soul’s Church, Langham Place, London
As scientific evidence builds, so does vocal opposition, much of it from religious conservatives. Why is climate change so polarizing, and how can shared values move us past the barriers we face?
Katharine Hayhoe combines biblical Christian faith, academic climate science, insights from psychology and sociology, and a winsome communication style that has led her to being named one of TIME’s 100 most influential people and one of Fortune’s ‘world’s greatest leaders’. She was the lead author of the recent US National Climate Assessment and is the face of the “Global Weirding” series as seen on YouTube.
