May 11

Here in Oregon (where we’re thick with Warmers) Michael Mann probably figures that he will be welcomed as a planet redeeming hero.  But, there is a healthy and growing group of skeptics here who are more likely to welcome the can’t-take-a-joke, you-can-have-my-Hockey-Stick-when-you-pry-it-from-my-cold-dead-fingers kind of guy Mann really is with some very inconvenient questions.

Victoria Taft has details:

I’ll bet he figured that in Oregon no one would question his doomsaying climactic predictions—except people who’d actually kept pace with CLIMATE GATE of which Mr Mann was a key participant.

Michael Mann, a climatologist and a leading figure in research on climate change, will speak on “Dire Predictions: Understanding Global Warming” Tuesday, May 11, at 7:30 p.m. in the Richard and Lucille Ice Auditorium in Melrose Hall.

The free lecture is sponsored by the Jane Claire Dirks Edmunds Fund.

Mann’s recent book “Dire Predictions: Understanding Global Warming” (2008) has been called a “straight-forward guide to how scientists, economists and engineers really understand the problem of global warming. The IPCC has been issuing the essential facts and figures on climate change for nearly two decades. But the hundreds of pages of scientific evidence quoted for accuracy by the media and scientists alike, remain inscrutable to the general public who may still question the validity of climate change.”
