Dr. Michael Mann to Speak on Long Island, New York at Suffolk County Community College

Nobel Award Scientist To Speak to Community

Date: Tuesday May 8th

Time: 7:00 PM ET (Book signing at 6 PM)

Location: Shea Theatre, Islip Arts Bldg. (Campus Map, park near Bldg. O)

Selden, NY – Suffolk County Community College will host Dr. Michael E. Mann, Professor and Director of Earth System Science Center at Pennsylvania State University, as he speaks on the topic of climate change science and the political controversy associated with the reality of human-caused global warming, on Tuesday, May 8 at 7:00 p.m. in Shea Theatre in the Islip Arts Building on the Ammerman Campus in Selden.

Dr. Mann is an internationally recognized climate scientist, Nobel Peace Prize winner, and accomplished author. He will be available for a book signing at 6:00 p.m. at the same location. The event is free and open to the general public.

Dr. Mann’s famous “hockey stick” global temperature reconstruction was prominently featured in the 2001 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Summary for Policymakers and since then, the hockey stick has become an icon in what he calls the “Climate Wars.” His research clearly showed that modern day temperatures are significantly higher than at any time in the past 1000 years and subsequent research by Dr. Mann and others have extended this time frame back to 2000 years.

Dr. Mann recently published The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines by Columbia University Press. In this publication Dr. Mann says,

“In short, I attempt to use the Hockey Stick to cut through the fog of disinformation that has been generated by the campaign to deny the reality of climate change. It is my intent, in so doing, to reveal the very real threat to our future that lies behind it.”

This event is sponsored by Suffolk County Community College’s Office of Campus Activities and Student Leadership Development on the Ammerman Campus in Selden. For more information, please contact Professor Scott A. Mandia at mandias@sunysuffolk.edu or 631-451-4104.

The discovery process for his lawsuit will be very interesting -- if he has the nerve to pursue it (which I doubt). http://news.investors.com/article/623331/201208231845/climate-gate-zealot-michael-mann-threatens-lawsuit.htm?p=full
