It is “A perfect storm of climate opportunity”. Michael E. Mann, one of the world’s most influential climate scientists and author of the book The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet, will reveal how to face the “coalition of the unwilling” made up of fossil fuel interests, climate change deniers, conservative media tycoons and petrostate actors.
