A Return to the Madhouse: Climate Change Denial in the Age of Trump
Friday, April 6, 2018
Third Floor, Levis Faculty Center
919 W. Illinois , Urbana

Michael Mann
Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science, Pennsylvania State University


Acclaimed scholar Michael Mann will examine the evidence of climate change, the reasons we should care, and the absurd efforts by special interest groups and politicians to confuse the public and deny a problem even exists. Despite the monumental challenges we face, Mann’s talk will give reasons to be cautiously optimistic that we will avert catastrophic climate change impacts.
