Citizens' Climate Lobby to Host Virtual Book Club with Renowned Atmospheric Scientist
Bloomsburg, PA (10/26/2021) — The Bloomsburg Chapter of the Citizens' Climate Lobby will host a virtual book club with world-renowned atmospheric scientist Katharine Hayhoe on Thursday, Oct. 28 at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. Participants can register online at eventbrite.com.
Hayhoe will discuss her new book Saving Us, A Climate Scientist's Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World. The Chief Scientist for the Nature Conservatory, Hayhoe is a Paul Whitfield Horn Distinguished Professor, Political Science Endowed Chair in Public Policy and Law and associate in the Public Health program for the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at Texas Tech University, and principal investigator for the Department of the Interior's South-Central Climate Adaptation Science Center and National Science Foundation's Global Infrastructure Climate Network.
In Saving Us, Hayhoe teaches readers how to talk about climate change. She argues that we need to find shared values in order to connect our unique identities to take collective action. Hayhoe uses an interdisciplinary approach to climate change, drawing from science, faith, and human psychology to give readers the tools to play a role in pushing forward for change.
