Episode Summary

Sir John Houghton
Widely recognized as one of the world's preeminent climatologists, Sir John Houghton has become as well-known for his theories on the compatibility of science and religious faith as his scientific achievements. A former professor of atmospheric physics at Oxford University, Houghton has devoted much of his career to researching the effects of global climate change on the environment and urging the international community to examine and address problems such as ozone depletion and global warming in a comprehensive and meaningful way. Human-induced climate change, Houghton has argued, kills more people than terrorism. As a committed evangelical Christian, Houghton has often voiced the belief that science and religion, rather than being opposing forces, actually complement one another - an idea that has rankled many conservative and fundamentalist religious groups.moreless
