All the Science Moms have one goal—a climate solution for everybody’s kids

If you’re a mother who worries about climate change, you are not alone — 83% of moms have this same worry! If you’re not sure what to do about it, or even how to talk about it, you’re not alone in that either.

The problem is bigger than any one of us. Together, we can put pressure on those who have the power to make big, sweeping change.

The #1 action mothers can take is to demand common sense solutions to tackle climate change from our leaders.

There is a new group of Science Moms who want to encourage you to take action, and to demystify the often overwhelming topic. These scientists are mothers and experts in the study of our Earth’s changing climate. In an effort to protect their kids, they are driven to work right now on the problems created by human-caused carbon pollution.

We are running out of time to tackle climate change. But, hey, if you’re a mom, you know all about being short on time. And the Science Moms break their information into bite-size chunks making it easily digestible!

Moms also know about getting things done! Once moms are armed with some trustworthy information about common sense climate solutions, they will know exactly what to do. They will also be equipped to talk to other people about it and to demand action from their leaders.

It’s not about politics, it’s about climate solutions

Science Moms don’t want to talk about politics, they want to talk about climate solutions that every political leader can put into action.

All moms want the best possible future for their kids, and they will do whatever they can to help them have it. And once you meet the Science Moms, you might find you have even more in common with them than you think!

Dr. Katharine Hayhoe

Science Moms

Dr. Katharine Hayhoe studies climate change, and why a climate solution matters right now. Her leadership and scientific expertise have been recognized from the pages of Time Magazine to awards from The United Nations.

Science and religion don’t have to be enemies.

Dr. Hayhoe brings a special focus to bridging the gap that often springs up between science and Christianity, a perspective that comes from her own faith. She credits her father for inspiring her love of science and wants her son to grow up in a world still full of possibilities.

Dr. Melissa Burt

Science Moms

Melissa Burt’s research focuses on how arctic clouds and sea ice are changing without climate. “You don’t have to be a climate scientist to want to protect the earth,” she explains. “As moms, we care about our children and the environment they grow up in.”

Dr. Burt works hard to be part of climate solutions, striving to make the earth a better place for her daughter.

Dr. Burt is also a Dean for Diversity and Inclusion, a role engaging faculty and staff and recruiting students from historically underrepresented populations.

Dr. Emily Fischer

Science Moms

Dr. Emily Fischer researches the impact of climate change on wildfires, and the impact the smoke from those fires. She has received awards for her contributions to Earth Sciences, and is a leader in the push for high-quality mentorship for the next generation.

Dr. Fischer knows that all mothers feel the same love for their children as she does for her two young daughters, and that all moms want to protect their kids. If we start working together today, Dr. Fischer is hopeful we can reach a climate solution.

Dr. Ruth Defries

Science Moms

Dr. Ruth Defries’s work has earned her some of the country’s highest scientific honors. She has written about sustainable development and works to bring science into policy discussions.

“I’ve been working on environmental issues ever since the first Earth Day,” she says. Since then, Dr. Defries has spent her life working for a healthier and safer planet, not just for her children and granddaughters, but, “for everyone on the planet.”

There’s no bigger issue for their future than climate

Dr. Tracey Holloway

Science Moms

Dr. Tracey Holloway wishes there were more hours in the day for family and for science, both of which she calls “team sports.” Dr. Holloway ‘plays’ on several different teams, including NASA’s Health and Air Quality Applied Sciences Team, which uses earth observations to advise policymakers about air quality and public health.

Reliable information is the key, whether helping leaders make decisions for a climate solution, or making her own choices on what is best for her two young sons. Dr. Holloway says, “It’s all about uncovering the information we need to make informed decisions.”

Dr. Joellen Russell

Science Moms

Dr. Joellen Russell wanted to be an oceanographer when she was twelve years old. Now she studies the ocean’s role in the earth’s climate and chairs the Climate Working Group of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Science Advisory Board.

Dr. Russell is committed to working for a climate solution so all of our kids can enjoy a stable and livable climate the way we were able to. (And she’s not so secret about wanting grandchildren to enjoy it too.)
