Professor Hayhoe is a Canadian climate scientist and communicator at the Nature Conservancy and Texas Tech University in the United States.

Available on all major podcast Channels

In this episode, recorded at COP27, we discuss the shifting momentum away from 1.5ºC as a boundary for climate heating, as well as the new arrival of Loss & Damage into the negotiations.

Is the public becoming too cynical and are we all, on the outside, powerless to have any impact? Katharine gives her take on all these issues.

  1. Dr. Hayhoe,

    Thank you for this interview. Your voice is inspirational. That said, I would like to see a communication at the end of COP 27. I read your post on Linked-in but that is a relatively small audience, largely focused on getting jobs. I would like to know that the Nature Conservancy is communicating loudly and broadly.

    In the face of the data, I am optimistic, for no reason than this is the way I want the world to go, and optimism offers possibility to others. I am concerned about what will happen in the US Congress now that there is a Republican majority in the House. As a result, I am continuing my participation with CCL and upping my participation with RepubicEN. I am also communicating to my neighbors through a letter to the editor on this two days before Thanksgiving.

    Finally, thank you for all you are bringing to this conversation moving us to reduce emissions. You are an inspiration to me every time I listen to you or read what you have written, most particularly your wonderful book.
