Renowned Scientist Provides Robust Climate Change Evidence; His Work Comes With A Price
Dr. Michael Mann, my guest on today’s podcast, says that global warming is real, is caused by human beings, and supports this claim with data both plentiful and compelling. This makes him very unpopular in some circles. Mann has been harassed, maligned and has even received death threats. He is an award winning climate scientist whose work contributed to a Nobel Prize and a 1999 graph dubbed the hockey stick. The graph modeled earth’s climate during the past 1,000 years, and its shape resembles that particular piece of sports equipment – a long shaft of a handle with the blade jutting alarmingly upward. Mann is Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Penn State University, with joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI). We discuss his work and his 2012 book The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines.
