"We now have a president and a Congress who will work closely with [Trump] under Republican leadership to basically take us backwards, back towards our dependence on fossil fuels at a time when the rest of the world is moving ahead and understands that we need to get off fossil fuels..” --Michael E. Mann, PRL Public Radio International

Mann received NOAA’s outstanding publication award in 2002 and was selected by Scientific American as one of the fifty leading visionaries in science and technology in 2002. He contributed, with other Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) authors, to the award of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. He was awarded the Hans Oeschger Medal of the European Geosciences Union in 2012 and was awarded the National Conservation Achievement Award for science by the National Wildlife Federation in 2013. He is author of more than 200 peer-reviewed and edited publications, and has published three books, most recently, The Madhouse Effect.


Bard Center for Environmental Policy hosts the National Climate Seminar, a webinar series, at 12pm EST. This year the series focuses on The Politics & Environment Education Project featuring academic and NGO experts from across the country who will lead a non-partisan discussion on the shift in U.S. environmental dialog from bi-partisan consensus to partisan gridlock.  Listeners can watch live or listen to past podcasts here. Past speakers have included thought leaders from, Sierra Club, National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and many more. 
The  Bard Graduate Programs in Sustainability  offer masters programs in  Environmental Policy,  Climate Science and  Policy, and Sustainable Business.  The Bard Center for Environmental Policy's career-focused, science based, interdisciplinary masters of science programs are located in New York’s beautiful Hudson Valley.  The rigorous first year coursework, followed by a required 4-6 month immersive internship, culminates with a Master’s Capstone Project and a 93% job placement rate within 6 months of graduation.
