Closing Keynote & Plenary: #CCL2021 November Conference

November 16, 2021

Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, The Nature Conservancy's Chief Scientist and Atmospheric Scientist and Professor, Texas Tech University, shares her takeaways from COP26 and reviews her latest book, "Saving Us."

In SAVING US: A Climate Scientist's Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World Dr. Hayhoe draws upon interdisciplinary research and personal stories to demonstrate that whether you’re a parent or a person of faith, a beachgoer or a sports fan, a foodie or a travel junkie, climate change affects someone or something you care about, which means you already have power to act for change. While other books in this space offer doomsday scenarios, Hayhoe ‘s approach is optimistic and inclusive. She argues that climate action isn’t about being a certain type of person or voting a certain way. It’s about connecting with our communities based on the values we already have, to inspire collective action.
