As Katharine Hayhoe writes: "I'm a climate scientist: I crunch the data, I analyze the models, and I help people like engineers and city managers and water planners prepare for the ways climate change affects all of us. I'm a professor in political science at Texas Tech University, where I direct the Climate Science Center. I'm also a lead author for the US National Climate Assessment; I host the PBS Digital Series Global Weirding
; and I spend a lot of time talking to people about climate science, impacts, solutions and how they connect to our values. I've been named one of TIME
's "100 Most Influential People," Fortune
's "50 Greatest Leaders" and Foreign Policy
's "100 Leading Global Thinkers."
