climate change

Renowned climate scientist and TTU professor, Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, will be part of the first Presidential Lecture and Performance Series on Oc.t 12, to discuss climate change.

There will something for most everyone in the upcoming 13th season of Texas Tech’s Presidential Lecture and Performance Series. The lineup has music, contemporary dance, some comical Shakespeare and a discussion of possible solutions to climate change.

Recently I had the pleasure to visit with the Director and Executive Producer of a ground-breaking film. In my conversation with Director Paul Allen Hunton and Executive Producer Dr. David Weindorf, I discovered Between Earth & Sky is the first film of its kind to explore global climate change through the lens of soil science, and tells the story of global climate change by shining a light on arctic soils, ecosystems, and the livelihood of Alaskan-Americans.

Katharine Hayhoe will be visiting Austin on February 4th to tape Overheard with Evan Smith and discuss her PBS Digital show titled Global Weirding. Global Weirding is tailored to those who are skeptical about global warming as well as those who genuinely want to learn more about the scientific concept.
