UPDATE: A complete list of climate series pieces is available here:
The Climate series: a reference post.
It's climate week here at La Maison. We wrote earlier about the looming global warming deadline — yes folks, "game over" really does mean the game is over. This is just one about six national deadlines we're facing.
In that context, you may find this short conversation interesting. Dr. Michael Mann is one of the originals in the field. He's interviewed here by Thom Hartmann.
Mann is the author of The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars. (The "hockey stick" is a reference to his graph that shows relatively flat climate over 1000 years or so, then in the modern era, the graph shoots up like the blade of a hockey stick.)
The full show, including all of the conversation with Dr. Mann, is here.
If this subject engages you (it sure has my attention), you can hear more from Michael Mann on Virtually Speaking this evening (Wednesday, May 16, 5pm EST / 2pm PST). Click here for the live show.
You can listen later to the archived show here. Virtually Speaking is also available on iTunes (which is often my source; I've set up an automatic podcast download).
It's been said that the environment and global warming are low on the list of active left concerns. That really needs to change, in my view. I hope this helps change your view as well.
