Katharine Hayhoe, chief scientist at the Nature Conservancy, talks all things climate change ahead of COP26

This month, we’ve dedicated an entire print issue of our magazine to COP26 and the climate. The issue is jam-packed with views and insights on climate change, how we can turn things around, and why the conference could be a critical turning point.

This episode, we speak with one of the world’s most effective communicators on climate change. Katharine Hayhoe is chief scientist at The Nature Conservancy, a global environmental organisation, with headquarters in the USA. She is a professor of political science at Texas Tech University. She founded the Atmos Research and Consulting Firm; was named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People in 2014; and serves as the climate ambassador for the World Evangelical Alliance.

She has alerted people across all walks of society to the reality of the climate crisis, and she’s just released her new book: ‘Saving us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World’, which takes a rare, optimistic view on why collective and meaningful climate action is still possible.
