Katharine Hayhoe is one of my all-time, go-to climate scientists. She's well-known in her field, and one thing that makes her stand out is the fact that she is a Christian from Texas, and she maintains that it is because of her religious beliefs that she continues with her scientific pursuits. A marriage sometimes in today's partisan world that's rare. I especially like her views on why climate change has become political--it's not so much an issue with the ideas (which do become the scapegoat), but more on the fear factor of how the solutions will effect the economy.
Here's Katharine is on a segment of CBS New's "CBS This Morning" from last February 27, 2019, sharing her view, her wisdom, her optimism, and her ideas of ways we can help our planet. Moral of the story: we need to be talking about it, listening to each other, and meeting each other at our hearts to truly hear each other and why climate change matters to us.
