U of T Physics and Astronomy Alumna Katharine Hayhoe Receives an Honorary Degree from Wycliffe College
Katharine Hayhoe won’t say that the climate crisis is insurmountable, but she will say that solving it depends on convincing people it’s a problem that affects them. That includes those in politically conservative communities in the U.S. where opinions often lean toward climate skepticism over climate action.
