Is Climate Denial a Sin?
Over the last few decades, many American Protestants have rejected the conclusions of mainstream climate science and instead have consistently aligned themselves with a cadre of climate change deniers. In an era when discussing climate change is often done in a hyper-partisan political manner, have American Protestants failed to ask the simple question: Is denying the reality of climate change a sin? In this lecture, Doran examines this question by analyzing the nature of sin, psychological dimensions of denial, and the possible ramifications for American Protestants who have become known for denying the clear evidence of climate change that we see right in front of us.
