National Climate Seminar Conference Call Series: Between God and GreenBring lunch and join us for this conference call.

Katharine K. Wilkinson is a former staff member at the National Resource Defense Council, and author of- Between God & Green: How Evangelicals Are Cultivating a Middle Ground on Climate Change (Oxford University Press).

Despite three decades of scientists' warnings and environmentalists' best efforts, the political will and public engagement necessary to fuel robust action on global climate change remain in short supply. Katharine K. Wilkinson shows that, contrary to popular expectations, faith-based efforts are emerging and strengthening to address this problem. In the US, perhaps none is more significant than evangelical climate care.

Wilkinson reveals how evangelical environmentalists are reshaping not only the landscape of American climate action, but the contours of their own religious community. Though the movement faces complex challenges, climate care leaders continue to leverage evangelicalism's size, dominance, cultural position, ethical resources, and mechanisms of communication to further their cause to bridge God and green.
