Katharine Hayhoe is an accomplished climate scientist, with over 120 peer-reviewed publications in the top journals in the field. She is also a remarkable communicator. She’s been recognized by Time Magazine as one of the top 100 most influential people in the world, by Foreign Policy as one of the top 100 global thinkers, and by Fortune as one of the 50 world’s greatest leaders. She’s 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.

As a world-class climate scientist and a Christian, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe may defy some stereotypes about the politics of religion and science. But defying stereotypes invites inquiry, which can lead to communication, even learning. It creates opportunity for thinking deeply about, and aligning, what we value and what we do. Climate change is a huge issue, and it’s one where citizen engagement is critical. That’s why her work is so fascinating: in part because it’s about climate change, and also because her main theme – faith and science – defies stereotypes.
