Penn State attendee Michael E. Mann, a distinguished professor of atmospheric science, will share his impressions of which efforts have worked and which have not, as well as his thoughts on the best path forward to net zero emissions, at a conference at 4 p.m. Monday. January 10. The conference will take place via Zoom.
Mann is an internationally recognized leader in the field of climate science and the author of several books on climate change.
