She Crunches Data And She Talks To Jesus, And She's Got A Message

This interview with Katharine Hayhoe is fascinating and inspiring, no matter your faith. But since there are 80 million evangelical Christians in America, it's especially cool to hear from someone who can crunch the climate-change numbers and be in touch with Jesus. I guess I shouldn't use the word "messiah," but I think society has been waiting for someone like her to come around for a long time. Katharine explains at 4:00 why climate change is different than normal Texas drought and at 7:00 how God could let climate change happen. She explains the beauty in the meeting of faith and science at 9:00, surprising ideas about religion and society at 12:00 and 16:00, and her top three recommendations for action people can take right now at 19:30.
