Michael Mann live on News Channel 8 Tuesday

This is a short blog I promise.  Michael Mann is one of the world's leading climate scientists.  He as, you may know, is associated with the term "hockey stick" temperature graph (actually a name given to the graph by another scientist) showing the northern hemisphere temperature trend and recent rapid rise over the last 100 years


in a report issued by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Third Assessment Report, in 2001. Dr. Mann, his research and the IPCC reports have been a source of spirtied discussion it is fair to say.  His recent book is applied titled The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines.  I will join Dr. Mann and Bruce Depuyt on Bruce's program on News Channel 8 "News Talk" LIVE at 10AM tomorrow, Tuesday July 10. I began my professional life as a research scientist, eons ago, and promise to ask Dr. Mann some tough questions about climate science as well as his experiences being a bit of a lightning rod on the topic of climate and climate change.

 But I'd like to know what you would ask Dr.Mann.  Post them below (please polite) or if you feel more comfortable e-mail me directly at  You can watch live and later on our homepage.  I'll follow up tomorrow.
