Michael Mann is one of the world’s most renowned climatologists and perhaps one of its most active and outspoken warriors against climate change. Mann is often the “go to” person for scientific information on historic climate change based on the temperature record of the past thousand years.

He has written five books, including 2012’s seminal The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars.

In his latest book, The New Climate War – The Fight to Take Back Our Planet, Mann describes how the fossil fuel industry and some media outlets have tried to cast doubt on climate change — not necessarily to deny that it exists but to deflect blame and delay action to mitigate a warming planet.

Michael Mann, Ph.D., appears on Thursday’s Smart Talk.
