At 5 PM, on today’s “Digging in the Dirt” segment, I’ll spend an hour talking with Michael E. Mann, about Climate Change. The award-winning climate scientist Michael E. Mann, and the Pulitzer Prize–winning political cartoonist Tom Toles, have co-authored a new book titled “The Madhouse Effect“. Mann and Toles have been on the front lines of the fight against climate denial-ism for most of their careers. They have witnessed the manipulation of the media by business and political interests, and the unconscionable play to partisanship on issues that affect the well-being of billions, not to mention the entire planet. The invaluable lessons they’ve learned inspire this brilliant, colorful escape hatch from the ‘madhouse’ of the climate change debate.
