I love that Katharine Hayhoe meets people where they are and finds common ground, while helping them understand the science.

Katharine Hayhoe

Climate scientist, bridge-building climate communicator

“When you find out what people care about, and connect climate impacts directly to the values people have, they can see that caring about climate change is already integral to who they are.” [“Saving Us”, p.32]


Katharine Hayhoe is a climate scientist who is the chief scientist for The Nature Conservancy and a distinguished professor and chair at Texas Tech University.

She can often be found talking to people about why climate change matters and what we can do to fix it.

Why she is a peace hero

I selected Katharine Hayhoe because I believe that climate change is the most urgent problem facing humanity today, and she not only does research in this area -- but also does a great deal of work to communicate the problem to people in ways that make sense to them.  

On a topic that shouldn’t be politicized, but nonetheless is, she has a compassionate way of making connections with people, trying to connect her knowledge with values people already have, even when they are resistant to the message.
