Understand how to win the climate war and take back our planet from polluters with pioneering American climatologist and geophysicist, Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science, Dr Michael Mann at this free talk.
Human-caused climate change is arguably the greatest threat we face as a civilization. Efforts to attack and deny the scientific evidence have constituted a major impediment to action over the past two decades. At a time when we appear to be moving past outright denial of the problem, we face a multi-pronged strategy by polluting interests to distract, deflect, attack, and divide the climate activist community. Dr Mann will discuss what we can do to fight back, emphasizing the importance of both urgency and agency in efforts to save our planet.
