Your Call: Climate denial in the era of Trump

Dec 11, 2016

How are scientists standing up to climate deniers? We’ll have a conversation with Penn State climate scientist Michael Mann and Pulitzer Prize–winning political cartoonist Tom Toles about their new book The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy.

In the debate over climate change, Mann says pseudoscience or anti-science is too often allowed to masquerade as science and denialism is allowed to pose as skepticism. Join us at 10am with, Rose Aguilar and you.
