Mann receives AAAS award for public engagement with science


 AUSTIN, Texas — Michael Mann, distinguished professor of atmospheric science and director of the Earth System Science Center, Penn State, will receive the 2018 American Association for the Advancement of Science Public Engagement with Science Award during the annual meeting in Austin, Texas, from Feb. 15 to 19.

Mann receives his award for "tireless efforts to communicate the science of climate change to the media, public and policymakers."

In the past year, Mann had 500 media interviews and appearances, and directly reached public audiences via social media. His op-eds and commentaries were published in dozens of outlets, including The Washington Post, The Guardian and Le Monde.

He has used a variety of media to communicate about the effects of climate change, including the 2017 publication of his third book, "The Madhouse Effect." For this effort, he teamed up with Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Tom Toles to explore public perception of climate change. He also was  a featured speaker during the 2017 March for Science in Washington, and has testified before Congress. More
