Despite the scientific consensus, there are substantial obstacles to the acceptance of anthropogenic climate change among the American public and to the incorporation of climate change in U.S. public science education. In his talk, Glenn Branch of the National Center for Science Education will address the question, To what extent do religious views, in particular evangelical Christianity, present such obstacles, as they clearly have in the case of evolution?
A spate of notorious incidents and dismaying statistics suggests that there’s a robust connection between evangelicalism and climate change denial. But a close analysis of recent history and survey data reveals that the connection is contingent and conditional, suggesting the possibility of its dissolution: it may not be necessary to wait for a cold day in Hell. Glenn has been at NCSE since 1999, serving as deputy director since 2002. He received the Evolution Education Award for 2020 from the National Association of Biology Teachers. Please join us to learn about this issue and other church state separation issues going on in California.
