At UCLA Law on Monday, February 13, Dr. Michael Mann will discuss his new book, "The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines." Dr. Mann is one of the founders of the RealClimate blog and a key figure in the climate email controversy from November 2009. Dr. Mann is known for his outspoken defense of climate scientists and, in a October 2010 Washington Post editorial, called on fellow scientists to "stand up to blatant abuse from politicians who seek to mislead and distract the public" on the issue of climate change. Dr. Mann was a Lead Author on the Observed Climate Variability and Change chapter of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Third Scientific Assessment Report in 2001 and shared the Nobel Prize with other IPCC authors in 2007.
