 "Return to the Madhouse: Climate Denial in the Age of Trump"  

Charles B. Wang Center Theatre - Friday, April 19th, 2019 -  3:00pm

Dr. Michael Mann offers a somewhat lighthearted take on a very serious issue-the
threat of human-caused climate change and what to do about it, based on his collaboration with Washington Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles. He targets the ongoing campaign to deny that threat through satire and where appropriate, ridicule, built around Tom Toles’ famously insightful, edgy, and provocative climate-themed cartoons in the Washington Post. Using Tom’s cartoons as a template, he reviews the scientific evidence of climate change, the reasons we should care, and
the often absurd efforts by special interests and partisan political figures to confuse the public, attack the science and scientists, and deny that a problem even exists. Despite the monumental nature of the challenge this poses to human civilization, he finds a way to end on an upbeat and cautiously optimistic note.
