Welcome to episode six of the EcoRight Speaks podcast. My dream is to become your must listen, that podcast that you wake up Tuesday morning eager to hit the start button on. My other dream is to get 100 5-star reviews on Apple Podcasts, so please help me make my dreams come true. You can rate us, write a one-line review, and if it’s good, our producer Price Atkinson will read it on the air.
Today we are pleased to be joined by Dr. C. Lindsay Linsky, the author of Keep It Good: Understanding Creation Care through Parables, described as “a landmark read for every Christian.” A teacher by trade, she earned her PhD in Science Education in 2012 and now focuses her scholarship on environmental education and creation care. Lindsay is a passionate writer, speaker, and advocate for creation care, especially helping “eco-hesitant” Christians understand the environment from a biblical perspective. Lindsay lives in Georgia with her husband and two children.
A giveaway: Lindsay has offered free downloads of the electronic version of her book for interested listeners. This offer is good until July 20th, so email me if you would like to access this special gift.
Also… In the pre-show, I mentioned the GAO report on the low balling of the social cost of carbon by the Administration. I promised links to the report and the New York Times article. At republicEn.org, we aren’t big fans of regulations. If you have been listening to the podcast or are a member of the EcoRight community, you know that our favored approach to climate change action is a revenue neutral, border adjustable carbon tax. But we can’t have nothing on the books, so until we build the momentum for a carbon tax or some related mechanism, the regulations are the fall back position. And even if you would like to see nothing on the books for climate mitigation, at the very least admitting we have a costly problem on our hands is step one toward finding a resolution. To set a rock bottom price on the damages caused by climate change is to ignore the potentially devastating impacts of climate change.
Thanks for tuning in.
