At a Climate Protest, Science and Religion

Both science and religious groups advocated for action on climate change outside the White House this Tuesday, reports Jada F. Smith at The New York Times. Smith writes that there has been an increase in the recognition of global warming among religious groups. Bob Coleman, the chief programming minister of the Riverside Church in New York City, said, “This gathering today is to affirm that God has gifted us in many ways, one of which is a good mind to figure out how things are going. It’s not so much an embrace of science, but an acknowledgement that science is a part of us, it’s a part of our own living every day.”
