The Madhouse Effect:
How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy
Author of The Madhouse Effect is the award-winning climate scientist Michael E. Mann, who has been on the front lines of the fight against climate denialism for most of his career. He has witnessed the manipulation of the media by business and political interests and the unconscionable play to partisanship on issues that affect the well-being of billions. The lessons he has learned have been invaluable—inspiring this brilliant, colorful escape hatch from the madhouse of the climate wars.
The Madhouse Effect portrays the intellectual pretzels into which denialists must twist logic to explain away the clear evidence that human activity has changed Earth’s climate. Mann’s expert skills at science communication aim to restore sanity to a debate that continues to rage against widely acknowledged scientific consensus. This climate science crusader enlivens the gloom and doom of so many climate-themed books—and may even convert die-hard doubters to the side of sound science.
Dr. Michael E. Mann, (AUTHOR) is Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science and director of the Earth Systems Science Center at Penn State University. He is the author of The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines and a fellow of the American Meteorological Society, the American Geophysical Union, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
