Climate Science from a Climate Scientist


 

What is the mainstream media getting “completely wrong” about climate change? Listen to what Katharine Hayhoe, one of TIME magazine’s Top 100 Pioneers and one of those “climate scientists” we hear about tells Green Connections host Joan Michelson.  Hayhoe is also an Atmospheric Scientist and director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University.  She’ll also tell us what we can do about it.

Michelson was the first American scientist to win the Nobel Prize (physics, 1907), Charles Michelson was the first White House Communications Director/Press Secretary (under FDR); and Miriam Michelson literally kept the women’s suffrage movement on the front page, as a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle and the Philadelphia Inquirer.
