Celebrate Earth, Celebrate Earth Day

“Climate Change is not a belief system.  We know that the earth’s climate is changing thanks to observations, facts and data about God’s creation, that we can see with our eyes and test with the sound minds that God has given us.”

– Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, Texas Tech University climate scientist and self-identified evangelical Christian
