Michael Mann - The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars

Thursday, March 15, 2012 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Mann was the lead author of the 2001 report by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize) that documented the correlation between rising temperatures and increased use of fossil fuels. The chart resembled a hockey stick and became a focal point for climate-change deniers. In his account of the politics behind the science, Mann discusses the attacks he and other scientists have faced from business and energy interests.
