"I truly believe that a failure to act on climate change is a failure to love." — Katharine Hayhoe

Earth Day is on April 22, 2022! Allow this conversation with climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe to inspire the stewardship of our beautiful planet.

Welcome to our special episode honoring Earth Day! Our interview with climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe is so appropriate for this week that we wanted to share it again today. Katharine’s book is an excellent resource for furthering one’s thinking about the privilege of caring for our planet, and this conversation with her is a great way to get the ball rolling.

So let me invite you into a conversation with climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe, author of the book Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World. I’ve been a fan of Katharine’s ever since we published a couple of interviews with her in 2016 and I’ve always been so inspired by the way she has pursued her calling in climate science. The book was life-changing for me. Katharine’s message is so empowering around the issue of climate change, offering encouragement and practical ideas without any guilt. But even more significant was seeing Katharine as an example of a person who is truly willing to reach across differences to bring about change. In our conversation, you’ll hear us discuss these bigger issues of calling and integration and respect for others — and you’ll also hear Katherine’s genius trick for grocery shopping that helps her to save time, waste less food, and create more delicious meals. I love the way Katharine connects big-picture questions with small, meaningful changes we can make in life.​ And — bonus! — we get to hear about Katharine's wonderful experience with the graduate student fellowship at University of Illinois. So have a listen! We're so glad you're here.
