She has published over 125 peer-reviewed a bstracts and publications and co-authored Downscaling Techniques for High- Resolution Climate Projections: From Global Change to Local Impacts (Cambr idge University Press\, 2021)\, and served as lead author on key reports f or the U.S. Global Change Research Program and the National Academy of Sci ences\, including the Second\, Third and Fourth U.S. National Climate Asse ssments. Her TED talk\, "The Most Important Thing You Can Do About Climate Change: Talk About It" has received nearly four million views\, and her n ew book (September 2021) is Saving Us: A Climate Scientist's Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World.\n\nHayhoe is a Paul Whitfield Horn Distin guished Professor and Endowed Chair in Public Policy and Public Law in the Public Administration program of the Department of Political Science at T exas Tech University. She is also the Chief Scientist for the global conse rvation organization\, The Nature Conservancy. She has a B.Sc. in physics and astronomy from the University of Toronto and an M.S. and Ph.D. in atmo spheric science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign\, and has been awarded honorary doctorates from Colgate University\, Trinity Col lege\, and Victoria College at the University of Toronto.\n\nShe is an Oxf am Sister of the Planet and currently serves on a number of advisory board s including the science advisory board for the Environmental Resilience In stitute at Indiana University\, the scientific research advisory council f or Engie\, the international advisory board for the Faraday Institute for Science and Religion\, the sustainability advisory board for Netflix\, and the advisory board for the Smithsonian Natural History Museum.\n\nIn 2019 \, Dr. Hayhoe was named to Foreign Policy's list of 100 Global Thinkers fo r the second time and received the United Nations Environment Programme's flagship award\, being named Champion of the Earth in the category of Scie nce and Innovation.\nDr. Bruce J. Nelson ’74 Distinguished Speaker Serie s\nThe 2022–2023 Nelson series\, “Climate Storytellers\,” will explo re the power of storytelling to promote conversations about climate change and to inspire climate action. We know that the impacts of climate change are already bringing great harm to the most vulnerable in our societies. We are all beginning to experience the effects of a warming planet in heat waves\, fires\, droughts\, and extreme weather events. We know that the s cientific consensus is clear: emissions from industrial activity are to bl ame. And yet political action to reduce emissions and to prepare for our f uture feels frustratingly slow. Publishing increasingly comprehensive scie ntific reports isn’t working. Neither is language and imagery designed t o induce fear and panic.\n\nThe speakers in this series are doing somethin g different. Drawing on a range of experiences and expertise in the scienc es\, arts and the humanities\, each of our speakers will share how they us e storytelling as a powerful tool of climate communication. We will learn how different kinds of stories can reach different audiences\, with the go al of inspiring climate justice and climate action.
