Climate Change Book Club: The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial is Threatening ...

When: Tuesday, October 23 2018 @ 06:30 PM - - 08:00PM
Where: Campbell LIbrary, Community Room
77 Harrison Ave
Campbell, CA 95008
Description: Join WILPF and Raging Grannies as we discuss "The Madhouse Effect; How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy" by Michael E. Mann and Tom Toles.

From the book jacket: The Madhouse Effect portrays the intellectual pretzels into which denialists must twist logic to explain away the clear evidence that human activiity has changed Earth's climate. Toles's cartoons collapse counter-scientific strategies into their biased components....Man's expert skills at science communication aim to restore sanity to a debate that continues to rage...

If you want to do more than fret about climate change, join the discussion. As the authors write, "We will not, we cannot, wreck this planet. There is no Planet B. Earth is a rarity of literally cosmic proportions." There are suggestions in the last chapter called "A Path Forward."

The Campbell library has copies of the book.
