World-renowned climate change expert Michael Mann, professor of meteorology and director of the Earth System Science Center (ESSC) at Penn State University, will present "The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines" at the 32nd annual Richard G. Osgood, Jr., Memorial Lecture on Wednesday, March 27, at The College of Wooster. The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7:30 p.m. in Gault Recital Hall of Scheide Music Center (525 E. University St.). A dessert reception will follow Mann’s presentation in the lobby of Scovel Hall (944 College Mall).
Mann was the lead author on the Observed Climate Variability and Change chapter of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Third Scientific Assessment Report in 2001, and also served as the organizing committee chair for the National Academy of Sciences Frontiers of Science in 2003. He has received a number of honors and awards including NOAA's (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) outstanding publication award and selection by Scientific American as one of the 50 leading visionaries in science and technology in 2002. He, with other IPCC authors was part of the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize and was also awarded the Hans Oeschger Medal of the European Geosciences Union in 2012. He is a fellow of both the American Geophysical Union and the American Meteorological Society.
Mann is author of more than 150 peer-reviewed and edited publications, and has published two books, Dire Predictions: Understanding Global Warming in 2008, and The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines in 2012. He is also a co-founder and avid contributor to the award-winning science website RealClimate.org.
Mann received his undergraduate degrees in physics and applied math from the University of California at Berkeley, his master’s degree in physics from Yale University, and his Ph.D. in geology and geophysics from Yale. His research involves the use of theoretical models and observational data to better understand Earth's climate system.
The Richard G. Osgood, Jr., Memorial Lectureship in Geology was established in 1981 and endowed by his three sons in memory of their father, a paleontologist with an international reputation who taught at Wooster from 1967 until 1981. Funds from this endowment are used to bring a well-known scientist interested in paleontology and/or stratigraphy to the campus each year to lecture and meet with students.
Mann’s lecture is sponsored by the Department of Geology and the Richard G. Osgood, Jr., Memorial Lecture Endowed Fund.
