The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial in the Trump Era Threatens our Planet, People & Politics

Through science, cartoons and satire, award-winning Penn State climate scientist Michael E. Mann and Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Tom Toles will take a provocative look at the impact of polarizing climate wars in the Trump era and years past. Their novel collaborative book, “The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change Denial is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, & Driving Us Crazy” is a counterpunch to climate change denialism in the face of overwhelming scientific consensus.
