Michael E. Mann and Tom Toles - The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy & Kevin Kallaugher - Daggers Drawn: 35 Years of Kal Cartoons in The Economist

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 30, 2016 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

In this inspired partnership, Mann, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State and one of the nation’s leading experts on climate change, and Toles, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post editorial cartoonist, expose the true folly of arguments against global warming. With dynamic, compelling graphics that illuminate the science, the book shows both the irrefutable evidence of human-generated environmental damage and the pretzel logic that skeptics and vested interests use to try to counter the inconvenient facts.

The award-winning and internationally syndicated columnist known as KAL, Kallaugher was hired by The Economist in the late seventies to do caricatures, which he soon elevated to the witty, insightful art of a master editorial cartoonist—skills he later carried over to The Baltimore Sun. This collection, drawn from over thirty years of his Economist work, focuses in turn on the United States, Europe, Economist covers, business and economics, and international topics, showing not just KAL’s range, but providing a capsule history of recent decades as well as serving as a primer to political cartooning.

This event will be moderated by Juliet Eilperin, The Washington Post’s White House bureau chief.
