Our guest this week is Michael Mann, the prominent climatologist and, above all, leading defender of his field—and himself—against political attacks.

Mann is out with a new book this month, which details his ten year battle against political attacks and misrepresentations. It’s called The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches From the Front Lines.

And already, people are attacking it on Amazon.com without having even read it.

Michael Mann is an American climatologist and director of the Earth System Science Center at Penn State University. He’s a co-founder and contributor to the blog RealClimate.org, and a fellow of the American Geophysical Union. He has over 150 peer reviewed publications to his name, and The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars is his second book.

Mann is one of my Heroes too.

Never since Galileo has being vilified by idiots been such a noble calling.

Agreed. 
In fact this audio got me to thinking I oughta support Mann a little so I purchased a couple of his books.  Dire Predictions has been around for a while, great easy reference stuff and I got my own copy now.
I’m looking forward to reading HS/CW to see how my reading jives with some of the reviews I’ve read.

Dire Predictions: Understanding Global Warming - The Illustrated Guide to the Findings of the IPCC by Michael E. Mann (Jul 21, 2008)
