Hosted by atmospheric scientist and science communicator Katharine Hayhoe, Global Weirding is an educational video series published between September 2016 and March 2019. In this series, Hayhoe draws on both her climate science expertise and her background as an evangelical Christian to dispel common erroneous beliefs about climate change and explain the scientific evidence behind it with the aid of animations and graphics in a way that is approachable for diverse audiences. This engaging video series has 36 episodes, generally 7-10 minutes long, that delve into potentially thorny topics such as whether global warming is just part of a natural cycle, why a few degrees of warming really is a problem, what the Bible and other religious beliefs have to say about climate change and what individuals can do to address it, as well as 21 shorter extra videos. Global Weirding was directed by Jonathan Seaborn, produced by KTTZ Texas Tech Public Media, and distributed by PBS Digital Studios. Katharine Hayhoe is the director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, where she is also a professor in the Public Administration program and a lead author of the Second, Third, and Fourth National Climate Assessment Reports.
