Climatologist Michael E Mann: ‘Good People Fall Victim To Doomism. I Do Too Sometimes’

The author and eminent climate scientist discusses the deniers’ new tactics and why positive change feels closer than it has done in 20 years. Michael E Mann is one of the world’s most influential climate scientists. He rose to prominence in 1999 as the co-author of the “hockey-stick graph”, which showed the sharp rise in global temperatures since the industrial age. This was the clearest evidence anyone had provided of the link between human emissions and global warming. This made him a target. He and other scientists have been subject to “climategate” email hacking, personal abuse, and online trolling. In his new book, The New Climate War, he argues the tide may finally be turning in a hopeful direction.
