Dr. Michael E. Mann is an American climatologist and geophysicist, currently director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University. He is Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Penn State University, with joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute.
He has pioneered techniques for finding patterns in past climate change and for isolating climate signals from noisy data. Since 1998 when he published the now famous “hockey stick paper” he’s been a prime target for attacks from climate science deniers who try to discredit him and his research.
In this clip Mann talks about the scientific consensus on global warming and the attacks by science deniers trying to undermine this consensus.
Interviews filmed in collaboration with University of Queensland, Skeptical Science, and Peter Sinclair. Full interviews available April 2015 in ‘Making Sense of Climate Science Denial‘: https://www.edx.org/course/making-sen...
