Meteorology and mere Christianity
Mick Pope believes talking about climate change may actually make people more interested in the gospel.
As a forecast meteorologist with twenty years of experience in the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, and a university professor with a PhD in tropical meteorology, Mick Pope is one of the most respected Australian Christian voices on the subject of climate change. He regularly speaks at conferences and churches and has authored two well-received books on the subject and innumerable blogs.
“I didn’t want to do ‘Christianity and’. I wanted to avoid bolting on environmentalism. So I went back and looked at the entire sweep of scripture again and concluded that I don’t need to, it’s all there.”
Yet ever since Mick first began thinking through his ministry, he’s been fiercely determined to ensure the message he preaches is a clear gospel one.
