The facts of climate change have nothing to do with blue politics or red politics or any kind of politics. Climate change is about thermometers and temperatures. It’s about what’s been happening on our planet since the Industrial Revolution. It’s Chemistry 101.
Everything you see here and much more is tackled head-on in “A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions” by climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe and evangelical pastor Andrew Farley (Hachette/FaithWords, October 2009).
What people are saying about the book:
"In the midst of one of the most heated debates of my lifetime, there are some voices that offer calm and respectful insight to people of faith. Balancing passion with civility, Hayhoe and Farley speak with such a voice. No matter what you believe about climate change's causes or effects, A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE will challenge you to think critically about both the issue and your responsibility to respond."

"Climate scientists are best able to tell us if, how, and why Earth's climate is changing. Ethicists and religious scholars and leaders are best able to tell us how we should respond to the knowledge that science provides. Authored by a climate scientist and a religious leader, this book provides a unique perspective on Christian responses to the findings of climate science. Anyone who is open to messages from both science and Christian scriptures will be struck by the insight and synthesis of this remarkable author team. With clarity unusual in science reports and impeccable logic, A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions, is a compelling call to action."

"This is a book all Christians should read. It makes the science, the issues, and even the misunderstandings, come alive. Christians need to help in the fight against climate change and its effects. Jesus calls Christians to serve "the least of these" - the poor and oppressed of the developing world - who are most affected by climate change. This book is a compelling call to action for any Christian who cares about the issues our world is facing today. And that should be all of us."
