Young Evangelical Christians & Climate Change by The 21st published on 2018-12-11T19:36:02Z This month leaders from nearly 200 countries are gathering in Poland to try to move the ball forward on batling climate change as part of the UN Conference of Parties. And here at home, we have our own internal battle when it comes to climate change, not just along political lines, but philosophical ones, as well. While Democrats are not surprisingly fairly unified in their beliefs on climate change, a PEW report found that there’s a huge divide when it comes to older Republicans and their millennial counterparts. Younger voters are more likely to support pro-environment policies. And the same can be said for Evangelical voters, long a political powerhouse. Meera Subramanian wrote about this young crop of Evangelicals fighting against climate change for Inside Climate Change News, and she joined us on the line. We also spoke with Diego Hernandez, a sophomore at Wheaton College profiled in Meera’s piece. Riley Balikian is a member of national steering committee for Young Evangelicals for Climate Action, a geophysicist at the Illinois State Geological Survey and also a Wheaton Grad. He joined us as well.
