Scientists enlist the big gun to get climate action: Faith

Stewardship, justice, and moral imperative–Lutherans, Catholics, and other Christians move the needle on environmental concerns.  Wherever one’s views may be on climate change, those who believe it needs attention may need to look to those who believe in more than the environment alone. “As climate negotiators struggle in Paris, some scientists who appealed to the rational brain are enlisting what many would consider a higher power: the majesty of faith.”  Students can consider this alliance for a discussion on ways that Christianity addresses the complexities of the world in ways that no single version of rationality can do.
