Atmospheric Scientist and Director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University
Free and open to the public.
Forecasting Our Future: Climate Change and Extreme Weather
Katharine Hayhoe is an atmospheric scientist whose research focuses on developing and applying high-resolution climate projections to understand what climate change means for people and the natural environment. She is a professor at Texas Tech University and directs its Climate Science Center. She served as lead author on the Second, Third and Fourth National Climate Assessments.
Hayhoe also is attempting to bridge the gap between scientists and Christians – work she does in part because she’s a Christian herself. She’s been named as one of Christianity Today’s 50 Women to Watch and hosts the PBS digital series “Global Weirding: Climate, Politics and Religion.”
She has received the American Geophysical Union’s Climate Communication Prize, the Stephen Schneider Climate Communication Award and been named to a number of lists, including Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People, Foreign Policy’s 100 Leading Thinkers and Fortune magazine’s World’s Greatest Leaders.
Hayhoe earned a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from the University of Toronto and an M.S. and Ph.D. in atmospheric science from the University of Illinois.
