Oregon Public Broadcasting - In this country there has been a strong link between religion and opinions about climate change. The more conservative the denomination, the more unlikely people are to believe that a changing climate is the result of human actions.

Katharine Hayhoe has confronted this connection head-on. She is an atmospheric scientist and the director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University. She is also a devout Christian.

We talk to Hayhoe about the link between faith and climate science, and why she has taken on the challenge of convincing Christians that climate change is real.
