"Evangelical Scientists Urge Congress To Reduce Carbon Emissions"

"Evangelical scientists have urged members of Congress to act on climate change in a letter calling for legislation to reduce carbon emissions and protect the environment."

"The 200 signatories said they aim to bridge the gap between science and religion.

'There's a sense that scientists are not a part of the evangelical community,' said Katharine Hayhoe, the director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University and lead author of the 'National Climate Assessment,' a federal scientific report assessing climate change impacts and current trends in the United States."
