As one of the world’s leading climate scientists and a star expert in the Emmy Award winning series Years Of Living Dangerously, Katharine Hayhoe understands why the choices we make today have a defining impact on the options available to us in the future.

“It’s not just about saving the planet, it’s about saving us.”

Dr. Katharine Hayhoe is a United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change scientist and Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, where her research focuses on developing and applying high-resolution climate projections to evaluate the future impacts of climate change on society and the environment.

In addition to the astounding accomplishment of having over 120 publications and serving as the lead author on several key reports for the U.S. Global Change Research Program and the National Academy of Sciences, Katharine makes science relevant to a broader audience by working directly with cities, states and organizations around the world to prepare for climate change.

As an evangelical Christian, Dr. Hayhoe does not take climate change on faith. Rather, she integrates science and religion to communicate an urgent message for all: climate change is real, and we must act now.

Recognized as one of Time Magazine’s most influential people for her restorative leadership that bridges the conservative climate divide, Katharine teaches us how scaling across shared values by having faith in people - and in faith itself - can help us look to the future with hope.
