The Resurgence Of Attacks On Science & Climate Change Denial
Hosts Rania Khalek and Kevin Gosztola are joined by Michael Mann, who  is a distinguished professor of atmospheric science at Penn State  University. He also directs the Penn State University Earth Science  Center. And he’s the co-author of the book, “The Madhouse Effect: How  Climate Change Denial Is Destroying The Planet, Ruining Our Politics,  and Driving Us Crazy.”

Mann recounts his experience testifying before the House Committee on  Science, Space, and Technology, which is chaired by Republican  Representative Lamar Smith, a massive climate change denier. He  addresses the chilly atmosphere for scientists currently in Washington,  DC, and talks about the dire situation the world finds itself on as  President Donald Trump rolls back initiatives intended to combat climate  change.

Later in the show, Mann talks about why he wrote a satirical book  about climate change. He also highlights the Science March planned for  April 22, when scientists will mobilize against the Trump administration  for its agenda of climate change denial and attacks on science.
