Michael Mann – The Serengeti Strategy

AGU 2014 Tidbits – Anecdotes And Stories From The Front Lines Of Science

During the AGU Fall Meeting I had the honor of working with Peter Sinclair of Climate Denial Crock of the Week and John Cook of Skeptical Science, interviewing an amazing line-up of scientists and science communicators. I’m floored by who we interviewed and could have a chat with. Everyone brought their A game which gave us some incredible footage.

Michael Mann - The Serengeti Strategy

Video description

Dr. Michael E. Mann is an American climatologist and geophysicist, currently director of the Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University. He is Distinguished Professor of Meteorology at Penn State University, with joint appointments in the Department of Geosciences and the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute.

He has pioneered techniques for finding patterns in past climate change and for isolating climate signals from noisy data. Since 1998 when he published the now famous “hockey stick paper” he’s been a prime target for attacks from climate science deniers who try to discredit him and his research.

In this clip Mann talks about one of the tactics climate science deniers like to use to attack scientists and climate research.
