Dr Mick Pope is a voice Christians need to hear.

So thankful to Dr Mick Pope’s work and witness.

A voice to be respected

To use an Australian term, Mick Pope has the runs on the board. He has years of experience in researching the science of climate change and why it is a central gospel issue for Christians. This is a podcast that is needed, and is given by a respected and established voice in the field. Highly recommended.
