“Climate Scientist Michael Mann: Deniers Are Shifting Tactics”

“In 1998, Michael Mann published a landmark paper that showed rapid global warming due to human activity.

Now, more than 20 years after the so-called hockey stick graph, the Pennsylvania State University climate scientist is out with a controversial new book.

Published earlier this month, “The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet” contends that the fossil fuel industry and its allies have shifted their strategies for delaying climate action.

Instead of attacking the credibility of the science, these interests are now blaming warming on individuals while arguing it's too late to prevent catastrophic impacts, according to the book.”
