Dr. Michael E. Mann will review the scientific evidence of climate change and the reasons we should care. Using humor and satire, Dr. Mann will recount the efforts by special interests and partisan political figures to confuse the public, attack the science and scientists, and deny that a problem even exists. Dr. Mann will explain why he is cautiously optimistic we will prevail in the battle to avert catastrophic and irreversible climate change impacts.
Dr. Michael Mann is a Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State and is Director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center. Mann is the 2018 recipient of the American Association for the Advancement of Science Award for Public Engagement with Science. Among his many honors, Mann was one of the authors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report awarded the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
