  1. Excellent video! I like the way she anticipates denier arguments and innoculates her listeners with the truth before the 'doubt is our product' crew can infect them. I just found out about Eunice Foote yesterday: amazing bit of history.

  3. I asked a few weeks ago after Katharine Hayoe's earlier videos featured on this web site how as a Evangelico Christian she resolves the contradictions between the Bibilical version of creation and the physical evidence of much longer time frame.  In this video, when she speaks of much longer time frames than the Bible, she is siding the the physical evidence.  I presume that many Christains take the Bible as a metaphor more than a historical document.  I hope she can speak to these Christian believers to support Climate Change believers so that we can work together to solve the problem.
