Katharine Hayhoe, an atmospheric scientist and evangelical Christian, is known for her work on regional climate impacts and for sharing her research with faith-based communities. She has been called "one of the nation's most effective communicators on the threat of climate change and the need for action" by The New York Times.
Dr. Hayhoe spoke at the University of Arizona on Wednesday, April 12. In her talk, she explored pathways to productive discussion about climate change: moving past the smokescreens to address the real objections and beginning conversations with values we share rather than facts we disagree on.
The talk was sponsored by the Institute of the Environment, the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice, the Climate Justice Network, the Center for Climate Adaptation Science and Solutions, and the Carson Scholars Project.
