We are pleased to announce that Katharine Hayhoe will be joining us as one of our keynote speakers for this year’s NABF Annual Meeting.
Katharine Hayhoe is an atmospheric scientist who studies climate change, one of the most pressing issues facing humanity today. Katharine may be best-known to many people because of how she’s bridging the often broad and deep gap between scientists and Christians— work she does in part because she’s a Christian herself. She’s been named by Christianity Today as one of their 50 Women to Watch, she serves as the World Evangelical Alliance’s Climate Ambassador and as the science advisor to the A Rocha USA, the Evangelical Environmental Network, Young Evangelicals for Climate Action, and she currently hosts the PBS digital series, Global Weirding: Climate, Politics and Religion.
Dr. Hayhoe is the Chief Scientist for The Nature Conservancy and a Horn Distinguished Professor and Endowed Professor of Public Policy and Public Law in the Dept. of Political Science at Texas Tech University. Her book, “Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World,” was released in Sept 2021 and she also hosts the PBS digital series Global Weirding, currently in its fifth season. Katharine has been named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People, the United Nations Champion of the Environment, and the World Evangelical Alliance’s Climate Ambassador.
It is not an exaggeration to say that Saving Us is one of the more important books about climate change to have been written.—The Guardian
“Saving Us provides the transition from the mind to the heart. And it takes a communicator like Katharine Hayhoe to draw connections between the scientific facts and our hope for healing a fragmented world.”—Patriarch Bartholomew, Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople of the Eastern Orthodox Church
Saving Us is a uniquely hopeful approach to the conversation on climate change. Katharine Hayhoe’s expertise is on full display both in the way she talks about science, and in the wealth of ideas she offers for how we can overcome over divisions, but her core argument is simple: we need to talk more with each other.—Archbishop Thomas Shirrmacher, Secretary General of the World Evangelical Alliance
