Film: Climate Change: Faith and Science—a conversation with Katherine Hayhoe

Gather with community members to learn from experts not only why the climate is in crisis, but different ways we can mobilize to reduce greenhouse emissions and sequester carbon. 

Katherine Hayhoe is Professor of Climate Science at Texas Tech University. In this short video she journeys north to see a wild polar bear and talks about how science can tell us about climate change and how our choice of solutions must come from our heart.  Erv Klaas with the Ames Climate Action Team will facilitate a discussion following the video.
