Climate Scientist Won’t Back Down Despite Threats, Harassment

This article discusses the way that climate change deniers are attempting to silence one of the leading climate scientists, Michael Mann.

  • Michael Mann, creator of ‘hockey stick’ curve for greenhouse gases, says we now have to double sea rise projections.
  • Sees California as ‘shining beacon’ for how to take action
  • Despite harassment, says ‘You don’t back off from a worthy battle when the stakes are important.’

Even as negotiators wind up another round of climate talks in Germany this week, there is little evidence that leaders are reining in global greenhouse gas emissions enough to avoid warming Earth by more than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) — that’s the threshold at which scientists say we can avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
