Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, will give our third annual V. Elving Anderson Lecture in Science and Religion on Thursday, April 21. Dr. Hayhoe holds degrees in physics and astronomy from the University of Toronto and in atmospheric science from the University of Illinois. Dr. Hayhoe is the daughter of missionaries; her husband Andrew Farley is an evangelical pastor.
As a climate scientist with a faculty appointment in a political science department, Dr. Hayhoe is both an exceptional scientist and also “perhaps the best communicator on climate change,” according to Professor John Abraham of the University of St. Thomas. Because of her unique combination of faith, her scientific understanding, and her gifts in teaching and communication, Dr. Hayhoe has been featured widely in the media—including film, television, and online venues. Here are some of the articles, interviews, and talks that will give you a good sense of Dr. Hayhoe as a scientist and as a Christian:
