Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, an atmospheric scientist and professor of political science at Texas Tech University, where she is director of the Climate Science Center, CEO of the consulting firm ATMOS Research and Consulting, an evangelical Christian, author of 125 peer-publications and finalist for Texan of the year, will be Bernice Butler’s guest on Healthy Living Healthy Planet Radio at 3 p.m., February 22 on iHeart KXFR 1190AM. She will explore the clean energy imperative and why our current energy sources are not working.
Hayhoe says, “I don’t accept global warming on faith; I crunch the data, I analyze the models, I help engineers and city managers and ecologists quantify the impacts.” Together with her husband Andrew Farley, a pastor and best-selling author of eight books, she wrote A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions, a book that untangles the complex science and tackles many long-held misconceptions about global warming.
She has also led climate impact assessments for a broad cross-section of cities and regions from Chicago to California and the U.S. Northeast. The findings of these studies have been presented before Congress, highlighted in briefings to state and federal agencies and used as input to future planning by communities, states and regions across the country.
Healthy Living Healthy Planet Radio interviews experts and thought leaders on the impacts of environmental issues on health so that people understand we simply can’t have a healthy life without living on a healthy planet.
