He’s back! In episode 86 of America Adapts, host Doug Parsons interviews famed climatologist Dr. Michael Mann.  Dr. Mann is the author of the famous ‘hockey stick’ climate research that has become one of the iconic images in the climate movement. This is Dr. Mann’s second appearance on America Adapts. In this episode, we discuss: winning the Tyler Prize (the environmental equivalent of the Nobel Prize); the quickly emerging issue of climate adaptation; Trump’s climate policies being worse than our worst case predictions; academic freedom and climate denial; the new generation of outspoken climate scientists and the worldwide climate youth movement!
