“There’s something fascinating about a smart person who defies stereotypes.”
That was Time magazine a year ago, naming Katherine Hayhoe one of the 100 Most Influential People. Hayhoe, director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, is both an internationally renowned atmospheric scientist and an evangelical Christian.
Along with her husband she is the author of A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions. Last year, she appeared in Showtime’s climate documentary Years of Living Dangerously. She is an gifted speaker and educator, and she’s coming to Vancouver May 7.
We are proud to be a partnering sponsor of Earthkeeping: A Climate for Change, presented by A Rocha Canada and Regent College. For one night only at the Chan Centre for Performing Arts, Hayhoe will share her perspectives on both her research and her faith.
“The data tells us the planet is warming,” says Hayhoe. “The science is clear that humans are responsible. The impacts we’re seeing today are already serious, and our future is in our hands.”
Here’s a short clip with more about Hayhoe and the event:
We expect this event will sell out quickly, so get your tickets today. Follow along with the hashtag #Earthkeeping. Hope to see you there!
