Climate Change Hope with Katharine Hayhoe
Katharine Hayhoe’s new book, Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World, is a practical and compassionate guide for talking about climate change across differences. Combining her research with thousands of conversations with everyday people, Hayhoe shows us how shared values can activate ordinary citizens to become climate change champions. We bring Katharine on the podcast for our first episode of the third season to discuss reframing the climate conversation and the foundation for real climate hope: action.
