The most recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report paints a frightening picture of the earth’s future unless action is taken immediately.

The cause of climate change points directly at human activity, primarily the use of fossil fuels, and the report states that only “strong and sustained” reductions in emissions can slow down the progression.

Michael Mann, Ph.D., Author/Distinguished professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University and one of the world’s most respected climate change experts appears on Smart Talk Thursday to offer more details.

Dr. Mann’s most recent book The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet on climate change was published in January 2021.
