We’ve noted several resources about or from evangelical Christian and atmospheric scientist Kathryn Hayhoe before. In 2021, she published Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World. As her publisher summarizes, “Over the past fifteen years Hayhoe has found that the most important thing we can do to address climate change is talk about it—and she wants to teach you how.” The book expands on the themes of her 2018 TED talk which emphasizes that “the key to having a real discussion is to connect over shared values like family, community and religion — and to prompt people to realize that they already care about a changing climate.” Additional shorter resources related to the book include this review or these podcasts from The Better Samaritan and On Being. We like that The Better Samaritan podcast emphasizes you don’t have to be a particular kind of person to care about climate change.
