Faith And The Environment: Why Climate Change Is An Everything Issue – KJZZ

Katharine Hayhoe never meant to become a climate scientist. In fact, in college she started out studying astrophysics, but she needed one more class to finish her degree, and she found one in the geography department on climate science.

She said taking that class completely changed her perspective. It showed her that climate change isnt an environmental issue its an everything issue.

Since then, Hayoe has dedicated her life to the cause.

Shes now the director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, and she was just named a U.N. Champion of the Earth, the United Nations highest environmental honor.

Shes also an evangelical Christian who wrote a book with her husband whos also a pastor called "Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions."

She was in Phoenix for the Geological Society of Americas annual meeting last week. The Show spoke with her about her work and why she calls climate change a threat multiplier.
