We all know that our region is facing enormous challenges as we grapple with flooding. While many factors such as development patterns and climate change affect flood risk, it comes down to how much rainfall we get and how runoff from storm events can be managed. Accurate information on rainfall amounts is essential to address these threats.

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.
