Something to watch, something to read:


The Inside Story of Climate Science https://thiniceclimate.org/

This site is geared towards younger people – probably senior high school to tertiary students – but equally suited to adults. There are lots of shorter clips and one long film (58 minutes), set in Antarctica, the Arctic and around the world showing the extraordinary work of scientists who are studying the changing climate.


A Climate of Hope: Church and Mission in a Warming World, by Mick Pope and Claire Dawson. UNOH Publishing 2014

Available as a back order at Koorong bookstore

An excellent introduction to both the science of climate change and a biblical perspective on it, also including stories of Christians taking action in hopeful, practical ways. Mick Pope has a PhD in meteorology and is an eco-theologian. Claire Dawson studied Commerce at Monash Uni and holds a Master of Divinity. She is passionate about connecting the dots between faith and everyday issues, including climate change and consumerism. While the book is now 9 years old, the basic science and theology remain as relevant as ever.
