Katharine Hayhoe named keynote speaker for Penn State's 2018 Colloquium on the Environment

The Colloquium is always superb and I would highly recommend marking your calendar for November 15th.

(Penn State News) The Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment has announced that Katharine Hayhoe will be the keynote speaker for the 2018 Colloquium on the Environment. Hayhoe is an atmospheric scientist studying climate change and its impacts on human systems and the natural environment. The event will take place on Nov. 15 and is free and open to the public. The location will be announced at a later date.

Hayhoe was named one of Fortune’s world’s greatest leaders in 2017.

Tom Richard, director of the Institutes of Energy and the Environment, said Hayhoe has played a crucial role in both advancing the science of climate change and in communicating that understanding to sometimes skeptical audiences.

“Professor Hayhoe is a climate scientist with an extraordinary ability to meet people where they are,” Richard said.
