Michael Mann Receives Award

Timothy Birdnow

Utterly astonishing!

From the press release:

"Michael Mann, professor of meteorology and geosciences and director, Earth System Science Center, Penn State, was awarded the Hans Oeschger Medal of the European Geosciences Union.

The medal was established in 2001 in recognition of the scientific achievements of Hans Oeschger to honor outstanding scientists whose work is related to climate: past, present and future.

Mann's research involves the use of theoretical models and observational data to better understand Earth's climate system. He is best known for the "hockey stick," a chart he and his co-authors published in 1999 using proxy climate data such as tree-rings and ice cores to estimate temperatures over the past thousand years. The hockey stick demonstrated that temperatures had risen with the increase in industrialization and use of fossil fuels and is the subject of Mann's new book, "The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars," due out in early 2012."
