We have all been there, demonstrating to someone the scientific evidence that climate change is real and man-made, just as their eyes glaze over in discontent. According to a study published in the journal, Nature Climate Change, leading with scientific evidence is a misstep.

Instead, we should focus on personal values, explaining how climate change is having a drastic effect on God's creation now! To have a more substantial dialogue, ground the scientific evidence in aspect of personal relevance, showing the listener how their immediate actions are having an effect on our ecosystem.
