9780446549561: A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions

Global warming: it's one of the hottest scientific and political issues of today. And yet we've all found ourselves asking . . .

- It's freezing outside--where's global warming now?
- Climate is always changing--how do we know this isn't just a cycle?
- Why should Christians care about global warming when we know the world won't end that way?

For all the talk about climate change, there's still a great deal of debate about what it all means, especially among Christians. A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE offers straightforward answers to these questions, without the spin. This book untangles the complex science and tackles many long-held misconceptions about global warming. Authored by a climate scientist and a pastor, A CLIMATE FOR CHANGE boldly explores the role our Christian faith can play in guiding our opinions on this important global issue.

From the Author:

UPDATE! Our book is currently out of print because we requested and received our rights back from our publisher so we could update and release a second edition.

We'll be fixing pesky errors, updating data and figures, and adding more discussion on both the theology and the practical actions we can take to address this important issue.

So please stay tuned, it WILL be back online and in print by early 2015.
