Hurricane Harvey brought record rainfall and flooding to the Houston-Galveston region. The impacts of the storm and ensuing flooding included loss of lives, homes and livelihoods. In response, researchers from the region with expertise in hydrology, climate science, engineering, coastal resiliency, energy, community development and urban planning came together to strategize on solutions.

On March 8, 2017, HARC will continue its People & Nature Speaker Series with an event at Museum Fine Arts, Houston Brown Auditorium featuring an evening with Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, associate professor in the Department of Political Science and director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University. Dr. Hayhoe is a nationally renowned climate scientist who works to bridge the gap between the complex science and public misconceptions about climate change. She has been named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People, Foreign Policy’s 100 Leading Global Thinkers, and has been featured on the National Geographic television series, Years of Living Dangerously. Dr. Hayhoe exemplifies the goal of HARC’s People & Nature Speaker Series: to illuminate and facilitate discussions on regional sustainability issues, ranging from climate mitigation and adaptation, sustainable water use, and the energy. We hope that you will join us on March 8th for a thought provoking and engaging discussion of climate change, how it could affect the greater Houston region, and what we can and should do about it.
