Michael MannMichael Mann, distinguished professor of Atmospheric Science at Pennsylvania State University, will give a talk titled “A Return to the Madhouse: Climate Change Denial in the Age of Trump.”  

This talk is sponsored by the Sustainability Studies Program and minor, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the John J. and Char Kopchick College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics Science Inspires Speaker Series, and the departments of Economics and Geoscience.

In Mann’s words, the abstract of the talk is as follows:

“In fall 2016, I co-authored the book The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial is Threatening our Planet, Destroying our Politics, and Driving us Crazy with Washington Post editorial cartoonist Tom Toles. At that time, many felt that climate change denial had been rendered irrelevant—that we were past it, and ready to tackle the problem head on. With the election as President of Donald J. Trump—an individual who rejects the overwhelming consensus of the world’s scientists that climate change is real and human-caused—denialism, however, has now officially infected the very highest level of our government. The official policy of the US government is distraction, denial, and delay, and doubling down on our headlong exploitation of dirty fossil fuel energy. I update the story told by The Madhouse Effect using humor, satire, and, where appropriate, ridicule, built around Tom Toles’ famously insightful, edgy, and provocative climate-themed cartoons in the Washington Post.

“I will review the scientific evidence of climate change, the reasons we should care, and the often absurd efforts by special interests and partisan political figures to confuse the public, attack the science and scientists, and deny that a problem even exists. Despite the monumental nature of the challenge we face, particularly in the era of Trump, I will explain why I’m cautiously optimistic we will prevail in the greatest battle human civilization has ever faced—the battle to avert catastrophic and irreversible climate change impacts.”

With over 34,000 citations to his 200+ peer-reviewed and edited publications, op-eds, commentaries, and four books, Mann’s primary research focus involves using theoretical models and observational data to form a better understanding of Earth’s climate system.

Mann was a lead author on the “Observed Climate Variability and Change” chapter of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Third Scientific Assessment Report (2001). Together with the other co-authors, Mann contributed to the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize awarded to the IPCC and Al Gore.

Mann has received numerous honors and awards including, but not limited to, the NOAA’s outstanding publication award (2002), the Hans Oeschger Medal of the European Geosciences Union (2012), the national Conservation Achievement Award for science by the National Wildlife Federation (2013), and the Climate Communication Prize from the American Geophysical Union (2018).

Mann is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union, the American Meteorological Society, the Geological Society of America, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. He is also a co-founder of the award-winning science website RealClimate.org.

Please join us for this exciting talk, followed by a guided question-and-answer session and/or open forum from 3:30 to 4:00 p.m.

We will be providing an overview of the many support programs available on campus.

Live at IUP: Karamo BrownWhat do toxic masculinity, anxiety, differences of beliefs and opinions, racism, intersectionality, gun violence, substance abuse, and Queer Eye have in common? They’re all topics that will be explored with a very special guest on Thursday, September 19!

Join STATIC as we present Live from Netflix’s Queer Eye: An Evening with Karamo Brown, live in Fisher Auditorium, on Thursday, September 19th.

This is a free event, but you must obtain a ticket for the event from the KCAC Box Office, from the STATIC office, or from STATIC staff upon entry to Fisher. Doors for the event will open at 7:00 p.m. and the show will begin at 8:00 p.m. Karamo will stay for a meet-and-greet with the audience after the event concludes.

According to his official bio, “three-time Emmy Winner and Culture Expert on the Netflix reboot of Queer Eye, Karamo Brown is a ‘sympathetic talk therapist wrapped inside a life coach and zipped into a fast fashion bomber jacket…” according to The New Yorker. Lauded for his ease and natural comfort in relating to different types of people, Karamo is tasked with making-over the hearts and minds of the individuals they help on the show; by helping them to confront and grow beyond the internal and external issues holding them back.  Onstage, Karamo draws from his work as a social worker to show how he both discovered and learned to explore his many different “identities.” Whether as a black man, openly gay man, a son of immigrant parents, a Christian, a single father, or former social worker; Karamo strategically utilizes the strengths of his numerous identities to achieve success – and teaches others to do the same. Beyond Queer Eye, Karamo has launched and published a number of works, including his memoir, “Karamo: My Story of Embracing Purpose, Healing, and Hope,” a forthcoming children’s book, “I Am Perfectly Designed,” and his podcast, “Karamo.” Karamo was the recipient of the 2018 Human Rights Campaign Visibility Award. He was also invited by the Obama Administration to work with the White House to create policy and legislation supporting LGBTQ youth and their allies after school hours. Since then he has personally worked with President Barack Obama to support the president Obama Foundation and the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance.  Karamo is an active member of the Never Again MSD gun-control movement after his Florida high school, Stoneman Douglas, suffered a fatal shooting in 2018. A graduate of Florida A&M University, Karamo worked as a licensed social worker for over a decade before transitioning into media.”

This event is completely free, but you must obtain a ticket for the event from the KCAC Box Office, from the STATIC office, or from STATIC staff upon entry to Fisher.
