Michael Mann: Climate scientist talks about the attack against him.
Mann gave a talk about the attacks he has endured. It’s only 20 minutes long, and summarizes the current situation engagingly and enragingly.
But the “enraging” part is still there—that duly-elected public officials would waste so much time, effort, and tax dollars on witch hunts like these is galling, amplified even more so by the import and stakes involved.
Mann has written a book about his trials and tribulations, called, “The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines.” It’s a great read, but I get so angry reading it that I can only take it in small chunks; my jaw hurts from being clenched so tightly. I’m glad he wrote it, though; the attacks on science truly are enraging, and that’s why I keep writing about them, too. They must stop.
So watch the video, read Mann’s book, and keep yourself up-to-date on what the forces of antiscience are up to. As I have said, and clearly as I need to continue to say, they are fiddling while the world burns.
