Visit of Prof. Katharine Hayhoe to Ireland

Prof. Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist and a leading science communicator, will be touring Ireland to deliver secular and faith-based talks on the topic of climate change.  Katharine is a professor in the Department of Political Science, a director of the Climate Center, and an associate in the Public Health program of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Texas Tech University. A remarkable communicator about climate change (as in her widely viewed TED talk, for example), she is also an impassioned advocate for Christian engagement with climate.

Katharine has received numerous and diverse accolades for her work in communicating the science of climate change. Among others, she has been named to Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People (2014), Foreign Policy’s 100 Leading Thinkers (2014 & 2019), Huffington Post’s 20 Climate Champions (2015), and FORTUNE magazine’s World’s Greatest Leaders (2017). She was named a United Nation’s Champion of the Earth (2019) and one of Christianity Today’s 50 Women to Watch (2012). Her talks are listed below.
