Portrait of Dr. Michael Mann.

A well-known expert on climate change will speak at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 23, in Eberly Hall 110, as part of the Meteorology Club’s fall speaker series.

Dr. Michael Mann is a professor of atmospheric science at Penn State University. His presentation — “The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy” will take a lighthearted approach to a very serious environmental issue.

His talk is based on his new book, The Madhouse Effect, which he co-authored with Washington Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles. The book will be available for purchase on Sept. 23, and Mann will sign copies.

He has published two other books, Dire Predictions: Understanding Climate Change and The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines.

Mann is the director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center and the author of more than 200 peer-reviewed and edited publications. His post-graduate degrees, in physics, geology and geophysics, are from Yale University.

Admission to his lecture is free, and the public is welcome.
