PARIS AGREEMENT – Katharine talks about the recent US pull out from the Paris Agreement and she actually identifies a huge silver lining.

BEARING FALSE WITNESS – Doug and Katharine dig into the phenomenon of why evangelicals are hostile to taking action on climate change and how many have been misled into believing the science of climate change is a false religion.

Key Quotes:

““Faith is evidence of what we don’t see; science is evidence of what we do see.”

““We are deliberately told by people we trust….that global warming is a false religion, requiring worshipping the Earth…”

“Regarding climate change…if you only look for negative information, that’s what you’ll find.”
