Forty-thousand delegates and heads of state are expected in Paris later this month, for the UN Climate Change Conference. It will be scaled back because of last week's attacks in Paris, but negotiations are going ahead as planned.

In the lead-up to the summit, we're talking to people on the ground about the challenges in documenting, researching and raising awareness about climate change. Toronto-born Katharine Hayhoe is an atmospheric scientist and the director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University. She's also a devout evangelical Christian. She talks to Brent about the challenges and successes in doing outreach with Christian climate change doubters.
