Katharine Hayhoe: Connecting Global Change to Local Impacts & Solutions

@ Glass Curtain Gallery

Online Event

Opening Wednesday, September 16th, from 7PM - 8PM

On view through Friday, October 30th

Climate change isn’t just a problem for polar bears or future generations any more – it’s affecting us here and now in the Chicago area.

The choices we make today will profoundly impact our future: the faster we cut our carbon emissions, the less adaptation will be needed, and the more suffering we can avert. In such a politically charged environment, are we still able to act on climate? Join Katharine Hayhoe as she untangles the complex science connecting our choices to future impacts and highlights actions underway today to combat this critical issue.

Katharine Hayhoe is an atmospheric scientist whose research focuses on understanding what climate change means for people and the places where we live. She is an endowed professor at Texas Tech University, she hosts the PBS digital series Global Weirding, and she has been named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People, the United Nations Champion of the Environment, and the World Evangelical Alliance’s Climate Ambassador.


This program is presented in conjunction with Third Coast Disrupted: Artists + Scientists on Climate taking place at Columbia College Chicago’s Glass Curtain Gallery. The exhibition is the culmination of a yearlong conversation between artists and scientists centered on climate change impacts and solutions in the Chicago region.
