Description: On November 7, the 29 annual Brossman-Frisbie Science Lecture will be presented by Dr. Michael Mann, distinguished professor of meteorology at Penn State University and director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center. Mann will present on the topic "The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars." This event will be held at 7 p.m. at the Winter Visual and Performing Arts Center.
About the Speaker: A central figure in the controversy over human-caused climate change has been "The Hockey Stick," a simple, easy-to-understand graph constructed by Mann and colleagues to depict changes in Earth's temperature back to 1000 AD. Mann will tell the story behind the hockey stick and attempt to cut through the fog of disinformation that has been generated to deny the reality of climate change.
