Michael Mann is one of the world’s leading climate researchers, as well as (as he describes himself) “the central object of attack in what some have characterized as the best-funded, most carefully-orchestrated assault on science the world has known.” Those attacks come from front groups for the fossil fuel industry, right-wing politicians, and climate change deniers — and they have been vicious. He details the attacks he’s had to endure, while explaining the science behind the rise in Earth’s temperature and the human causes behind it, in “The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars.”
He joined me on my America Weekend show to discuss what it’s been like to be on the front lines of this battle. Listen, then click here to subscribe to these podcasts via iTunes!
