Dig Deeper: This Earth Week, Get to Know Keynote Speaker Katharine Hayhoe


By Shawn Proctor and Merrill Stein

During Earth Week, Villanova is fortunate to host climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe, PhD, as she delivers the keynote, “Christians, Climate, and our Culture in the US.” The talk will speak to the misconception that religion and science must occupy opposing sides of the topic of climate change.

In the last half-century, the average global temperature has risen faster than ever before in recorded history. This trend has reshaped our planet. It represents a looming threat to our planet’s future.

Dr. Hayhoe, endowed Professor in Public Policy and Public Law and Co-Director of the Climate Center at Texas Tech University, uses her evangelical Christian faith to inform her work and how she talks with those who would challenge her research.

Before she delivers her keynote on April 22 at 5:30 p.m., dig deeper to learn more about Dr. Hayhoe and her work, which has been cited more than 7,000 times, according to Scopus (Elsevier).

Prior registration for this ACS-approved event is required.
