Katherine Hayhoe loves to talk about Jesus, which is not unusual for someone who was raised in an evangelical family and is married to a pastor. She also loves to talk about climate change, which is natural for an atmospheric scientist who directs the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University.
When she speaks she often combines the two topics, as she did last week at Upper House, on the University of Wisconsin campus. Which meant that a very religiously diverse audience heard a compelling Christian testimony, along with some compelling information on climate change. Her talk was co-sponsored by a number of campus-based [the Center for Religion and Global Citizenry was a sponsor] and climate-oriented organizations.
