Climate Warriors

Michael Mann, Katharine Hayhoe,
Bill Anderegg, Greg Dalton
Michael Mann warns that "we can't allow science to be killed. We can't allow the scientific agenda to be set by those that have vested interests to not have the truth be unveiled." Over the past decade climate science has become increasingly political. Climate scientists who have taken on public roles cope with personal threats, hacking attacks and assaults on their professional integrity. "We are not in this because we value people's opinions of us. We are not in this because we want to receive pleasant emails in the morning. We are in this because this is the truth and we have to tell it," said evangelist climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe.

Michael Mann, Katharine Hayhoe, and Bill Anderegg discuss their experiences as climate scientists in a field under the magnifying glass of politics, economics and amplified emotions with Greg Dalton.

Michael Mann is Professor of Geosciences, Penn State and author of "The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars".
Katharine Hayhoe is Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at Texas Tech University. Bill Anderegg is Doctoral Student at Stanford.
Greg Dalton founded Climate One at The Commonwealth Club in 2007.
