The Madhouse Effect cover

NCSE is pleased to offer a free preview (PDF) of Michael E. Mann and Tom Toles's The Madhouse Effect: How Climate Change is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy (Columbia University Press, 2016). The preview consists of a chapter entitled "Geoengineering, or 'What Could Possibly Go Wrong?" which expresses skepticism about "many of the technofix schemes proposed as purported solutions to the problem of human-caused climate change."

Mann is Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University; Toles is a Pulitzer-Prize-winning cartoonist at the Washington Post. Of their book, Jane Lubchenco writes, "Brilliant, insightful, and fresh! Two gifted experts — one a scientist, the other an editorial cartoonist — invite you to be entertained and outraged, inspired and motivated to escape the madhouse that characterizes climate dialogue and politics today. New and hilarious insights into climate change. I loved it!"
