Dr. Katharine Hayhoe Named Among Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential


New York, NY, April 23, 2014—Climate scientist Dr. Katharine Hayhoe was named by TIME magazine as one of the 100 most influential people in the world. Her profile was written by Oscar-nominated actor Don Cheadle who collaborated with Hayhoe on Showtime’s climate documentary, Years Of Living Dangerously.

“I am honored to be included in the TIME 100 list,” Hayhoe said. “Even more so, I am encouraged to see climate change emerging as an urgent concern. With 97 percent of climate scientists agreeing that climate change is happening due to the choices people make every day, I am a spokesperson with one principal goal – to bring public awareness to the simple truth that the scientific debate is over, and now it’s time for all of us to take action. I’m grateful to TIME for bringing further visibility to my work and to everyone who is standing up to climate change around the world.”

Dr. Hayhoe is the scientific advisor to the Evangelical Environmental Network and director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University. In 2007, she and her team received the Nobel Peace Prize for their work with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Her book, A Climate For Change, written with husband Dr. Andrew Farley, untangles the complex science and tackles many long-held misconceptions about global warming. –AH
