Katherine Hayoe is one of the clearest communicators about climate change in the country. Spend some time perusing her videos and you will understand why she is so popular.
Hayhoe has joined forces with a group of Science Moms to demystify climate change.
We often feel helpless about what we can do, and it turns out that one simple thing moms can do is to support immediate action by the government to address global warming.
There is no longer any argument about the facts, more than 99% of climate scientists like Hayhoe agree that human emissions of carbon pollution are warming the planet.
An atmospheric scientist, Hayhoe is currently a director of the Climate Center and an associate in the Public Health program of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Texas Tech University. Her lengthy list of accolades includes being named among TIME’s 100 Most Influential People, FORTUNE’s World’s Greatest Leaders, and Working Mom’s 50 Most Influential Moms.
But despite her impressive credentials, she and the rest of the Science Moms don’t want Americans to be intimidated by climate change. After all, it affects every one of us—and if left unchecked, it will ruin our livable climate.
Although her husband is a pastor and she’s a practicing Christian, Katharine Hayhoe doesn’t accept global warming on faith. She crunches the data and analyzes the models.
