Saving Us: Q&A with a Hopeful Climate Scientist
Dr. Katharine Hayhoe shares that "the data tells us the planet is warming; the science is clear that humans are responsible; the impacts we’re seeing today are already serious; and our future is in our hands." Yet, most people aren't talking about climate change.
Where do we begin? What do we say when people are skeptical? How do we stay hopeful in the face of some overwhelming trends? And what is our call in all of this as Christians?
Join us for some real talk with renowned climate-scientist and hopeful Christian, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, ONLINE Thursday, March 31, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. Bring your questions!
Attendance is FREE but registration is required.
