oin Dr. Katharine Hayhoe at an ecumenical, carbon-friendly webinar as she untangles the complex science behind global warming and highlights the key role our faith and values play in shaping our attitudes and actions on this crucial topic. The session will include 15 minutes of question and answer with Dr. Hayhoe! The event is free and open to the public.
Dr. Katharine Hayhoe is an accomplished atmospheric scientist who studies climate change and why it matters to us here and now. She is also a remarkable communicator. In 2014, she was recognized by Time Magazine as one of the top 100 Most Influential People in the world and by Foreign Policy as one of the top 100 Global Thinkers.
But Hayhoe may be best-known to many people because of how she’s bridging the broad gap between scientists and Christians- work she does in part because she’s a Christian herself. Together with her husband Andrew Farley, a pastor of Church without Religion and best-selling author, Hayhoe wrote “A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions,” a book that untangles the complex science and tackles many long-held misconceptions about global warming.
She also hosts the popular YouTube series, "Global Weirding," which demystifies a different aspect of climate change every week.
Dr. Hayhoe is lead author for the U.S. National Climate Assessments and has served on the panels for the National Academy of Science, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and many other professional organizations devoted to understanding and communicating climate change. She is currently a professor and directs the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University. She has a B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Toronto and an M.S. and Ph. D. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Illinois.
