For those in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area), Tyndale University College and Seminary is hosting what promises to be an interesting public lecture on the subject of climate change by leading climatologist Katharine Hayhoe. Hayhoe, a self-identified evangelical Christian, was recently named to Time Magazine’s list of “The 100 Most Influential People.” The title of her talk is: “A Climate for Change: Paris and Beyond – A Christian Response to the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.”
The event is this coming Saturday, January 16 beginning at 6:00 pm. More information about the event and about purchasing tickets can be found here.
