Publisher Description

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, colorful 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. Toles's cartoons collapse counter-scientific strategies into their biased components, helping readers see how to best strike at these fallacies. 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.

Scott Wright - Streetsec ,

This book is indispensable for those concerned with, or even questioning the issue of climate change

Michael E. Mann does a great job in presenting the issues in an organized, logical way. It's full of reference notes to support every claim he makes.

There are countless, important concepts and explanations in this book. For example, distinguishing between healthy, scientific skepticism and the "other" kinds of skepticism, which are not based on facts or solid methodologies.

Without understanding many of these basic, non-technical concepts, it can be hard to argue against the inflammatory, irrational forces fighting on behalf of corporate and special interests to avoid or delay taking action on climate change.

We now have a handbook for justifying and taking action now. Please read this book, and tell others to read it!
