Your Call's One Planet Series: Fighting the Trump administration's attacks on climate science

Jan 22, 2018

  

On the next Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll speak with Penn State professor and climatologist Michael Mann who calls the Trump administration the most anti-science and anti-environmental administration in US history.

He says the government is engaged in an unprecedented effort to suppress science and rewrite scientific history. How are scientists fighting back and what does the latest data tell us about climate change and extreme weather? Join the conversation, with Rose Aguilar, and you.

Guest:

Michael Mann, director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University and author of The Madhouse Effect, The Tantrum that Saved the World, Dire Predictions, and The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars
