The Environmental Cowboy?
The Environmental Cowboy is a media persona created by Australian Environmental Scientist, Khory Hancock.
An adventurous young scientist, Khory is passionate about the future of the planet and the people on it and truly believes humanity is the solution; the people will drive the innovation and creativity that is needed to solve climate change.
The primary focus of the Environmental Cowboy brand is to educate a wide audience and in particular younger generations on the impact of human based climate change. Khory describes himself as a ‘visionary strategist’, that explores solutions that help to make positive changes today, ultimately creating a better tomorrow.
Using social media channels and speaking engagements, The Environmental Cowboy educates the audience on climate science, identifying the current and future challenges faced in Australia and globally with an aim to influence behavioural change.
Social media content is delivered via a mix of educational and entertaining videos and written communications. While at times infused with humour, Khory’s messages are also inspirational, authentic and credible due to his extensive qualifications and experience in the climate science and environmental fields.
Why the Environmental Cowboy?
“I care for people as much as I do the natural environment. I am a scientist and as a scientist my job is to communicate the science in the best way I can.
Climate science is saying we will suffer severe economic, social and environmental consequences if we don’t act on a fast reduction of carbon emissions. I wish to reduce the suffering I see now from extreme floods, fires, heat waves, droughts, landslides and hurricanes that are made worse from climate change.
The environment is the very basis of our existence, if we lose it, we lose the ability to survive, and what makes us human. We are now at an ecological tipping point, meaning we have an opportunity to change together to reduce the impacts now and into the future of human induced climate change”.
