Katharine Hayhoe

At this pivotal moment for our planet, join climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe for a solutions-oriented talk about what people can do to have the biggest impact in their communities. In this critical election year, when every decision is a climate decision, Hayhoe will discuss what’s new in climate action and climate science—and offer viable solutions that everyone across the political spectrum can support and adopt at the local and national levels.

Hayhoe is the Chief Scientist for The Nature Conservancy and the Paul Whitfield Horn Distinguished Professor and the Political Science Endowed Chair in Public Policy and Public Law in the Department of Political Science at Texas Tech University.

The Peter M. Wege Lecture Series focuses on the critical sustainability challenges of the 21st century such as global climate change, clean energy transitions, freshwater scarcity, ecosystem degradation and biodiversity loss, and how to accelerate just and sustainable solutions.
