Climate change isn’t just a problem for polar bears or future generations anymore—it’s affecting us here and now. In today's politically charged environment, are we still able to act on climate? In the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center's last evening lecture of the year, join Katharine Hayhoe as she untangles the complex science connecting our choices to future impacts and highlights climate solutions underway right now. Katharine Hayhoe is a climate scientist and science communicator. She serves as Chief Scientist of The Nature Conservancy, and the Political Science Endowed Professor in Public Policy and Public Law at Texas Tech University. Her TED talk, “The most important thing you can do to fight climate change: Talk about it” has nearly 4 million views. Her most recent book, “Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World,” will be published in September 2021. She also co-founded Science Moms, a group of scientist mothers working to demystify climate change and give parents the info they need to conserve the planet for their children. Hosted by the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center.
