Climate Change, Our Faith Values, and 2020: A Conversation Between Dr. Katharine Hayhoe and Rev. Susan Hendershot

September 14, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Hotter temperatures, rising seas, and extreme weather events are a few of the climate impacts we can expect to worsen in years to come. At its core, climate change is profoundly unjust. It exacerbates hunger, poverty, and even political instability, disproportionately impacting the most vulnerable people of the world, the very ones we Christians are called to love and care for.

Climate scientist and evangelical, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, will join Rev. Susan Hendershot to discuss the latest outlook on climate change, and how to communicate the climate message effectively, from a position of shared values.

Hayhoe is a climate scientist at Texas Tech, where she co-directs the Climate Center. She is also an evangelical Christian and the wife of a pastor in Lubbock. She has been named to a number of lists including Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, Foreign Policy’s 100 Leading Thinkers, FORTUNE magazine’s World’s Greatest Leaders, and Christianity Today as one of their 50 Women to Watch.

Join the webinar and learn effective ways to talk to your faithful friends and colleagues about the importance of caring for Creation and voting our values.

Hosted by Interfaith Power & Light, Catholic Climate Covenant, and Young Evangelicals for Climate Action.
