Description

In this episode of House on Fire, we interview Nobel prize-winning scientist, Dr. Michael E. Mann about the decades of climate change disinformation that’s been fueled by interest groups, fossil fuel firms, political/public figures, etc. This idea sprouted in light of the energy justice crisis in Texas, a shining example of energy injustice, where extreme weather proved how unreliable and incompetent an independent, fossil-fuel-based grid is. With that, we’re seeing opponents of clean energy spread lies about what’s happening, leading to an uninformed conversation about climate change. But the burning question that we’ll be focusing on this episode is why did they lie? And in whose interest?

Guest Name/Attributes: Dr. Michael E. Mann is one of the world’s most renowned climate scientists and communicators. He is known for significantly contributing to our current scientific understanding of human-made climate change by examining our planet’s temperature record over the past thousand years. Today, Dr. Mann is the Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State and is the director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center. Dr. Mann has authored over 200 publications, many op-eds and commentaries, and five books, including his newest one: The New Climate War: The Fight To Take Back Our Planet. His latest release explains how fossil fuel firms, right-wing politicians, media personalities, and oil-funded governments profit from our outdated dependence on fossil fuels through powerful sources of disinformation, denial, and delay.


House on Fire is produced and edited by Michael Landsberg/ML3 Media. It is hosted by the All Points West podcast network.
