Author will discuss Christians and climate change

Author Katharine Wilkinson will speak Thursday at CSU about her new book, “Between God and Green: How Evangelicals are Cultivating a Middle Ground on Climate Change.”

Wilkinson, a Rhodes scholar and expert on religious leaders’ views of climate change, will focus on how evangelical leaders who were once considered disconnected from the topic are embracing the notion of climate change.

Many evangelicals are now working on both sides of the political aisle to foster policy change on environmental issues, according to Wilkinson.

The lecture is set for 4:15 p.m. in Room 212 of the Shephardson Building, and is free and open to the public.

It is sponsored by CSU’s Department of Political Science, the Department of Philosophy, ChangingClimates@CSU and the School of Global Environmental Sustainability.
