Climate change with Dr Katherine Hayhoe
We are prompted by our colleagues in A Rocha Switzerland to highlight, in light of upcoming events at COP21, the work of a significant person:
Dr Hayhoe is a specialist in atmospheric science, and an evangelical Christian, who has taken upon herself a mission to explain climate change to Christian believers. Recently, TIME magazine named her one of the “100 most influential people in the world”. She will be speaking during a one-day conference organized by A Rocha on 5 December in Paris, on the sidelines of the COP-21 conference.
Katherine Hayhoe also spoke at a day organized by A Rocha Canada last May, at Regents College in Vancouver. She shared the stage with the co-founders of A Rocha, Peter and Miranda Harris, and the folk musicians Sheree Platt and Jeremy Eisenhauer.
