Michael E. Mann, author of “The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars,” will give a presentation on his book April 3 at Warren Wilson College. The event, free and open to the public, begins at 7 p.m. in the Warren Wilson College Chapel.
In its 2001 report, the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change prominently featured the so-called “hockey stick,” a graph showing global temperature data over the past thousand years. The graph demonstrated that temperature had risen with the increase in industrialization and use of fossil fuels, and the hockey stick soon became a central icon in what some have termed the “climate wars.” Mann, lead author of the original paper in which the hockey stick first appeared, writes in his book about the science and politics behind the climate-change controversy.
