The Trump presidency has made for a jittery scientific community, and an atmosphere of anxiety — even despair — among many who feel climate change is the greatest peril facing civilization.
Their worries are shared by Katharine Hayhoe, the director of the Climate Science Center and a professor of political science at Texas Tech University.
Hayhoe is one of the most prominent climate scientists working in the United States today. She is also a Canadian — and an evangelical Christian. Her speciality is talking about climate change with people who are not already convinced of its legitimacy and urgency.
Hayhoe was named one of world’s 50 greatest leaders by Fortune magazine earlier this year, and one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World in 2014. She’s also the host of a PBS online series called “Global Weirding”.
