Today on KTRS, I continued the conversation I began a few weeks ago with Michael Mann, one of the world’s leading climate researchers. Since he began publicly warning about the Earth’s rising temperatures and the effects of climate change 15 years ago, he and his colleagues have been attacked by the fossil fuel industry, right-wing politicians, and climate change deniers — and it has gotten very personal. Mann writes about these battles in his new book, “The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches From The Front Lines.”
We discussed the extent to which those forces have tried to squelch his important message about what humans are doing to ourselves, including attempts by people in power to intimidate not just Mann, but other scientists as well. Listen, then click here to subscribe to these podcasts via iTunes!
