Publisher's Summary

The award-winning climate scientist Michael E. Mann and the Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Tom Toles have been on the front lines of the fight against climate denialism for most of their careers. They have witnessed the manipulation of the media by business and political interests and the unconscionable play to partisanship on issues that affect the well-being of billions. The lessons they have learned have been invaluable, inspiring this brilliant escape hatch from the madhouse of the climate wars.
The Madhouse Effect portrays the intellectual pretzels into which denialists must twist logic to explain away the clear evidence that human activity has changed Earth's climate. Mann's expert skills at science communication aim to restore sanity to a debate that continues to rage against widely acknowledged scientific consensus. The synergy of these two climate science crusaders enlivens the gloom and doom of so many climate-themed books, and may even convert die-hard doubters to the side of sound science.

A road map to climate renewal

A cogent sensible outline of the issues facing climate renewal and an outline how to address the deep pockets funding political denialism. Start by calling it out. The toons should have been appended as a pdf.

Great Climate Science, Poor Narration

Professor Mann is a leading climate scientist who shares his wisdom in this wonderful book. He goes beyond the basic & common issues in anthropogenic climate change & touches lesser discussed topics such as impact of clouds & ocean circulation. Unfortunately, the narration is poor. Frequent errors are noted, such as "Atlantic" instead of "Antarctic ". Other words are badly mispronounced. Of course the cartoon portion of the book is not available. Valuable book for climate activists & anyone interested in current climate science.
