New Michael Mann Book Coming in January

Michael Mann has a new book coming out in January: The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet. You can pre-order it on Amazon here, and I'm sure other places as well.
In The New Climate War, Mann argues that all is not lost. He draws the battle lines between the people and the polluters--fossil fuel companies, right-wing plutocrats, and petrostates. And he outlines a plan for forcing our governments and corporations to wake up and make real change, including:
  • a common-sense, attainable approach to carbon tax-- an overhaul of the flawed Green New Deal;
  • allowing renewable energy to compete fairly against fossil fuels
  • debunking the false narratives and arguments that have worked their way into the climate debate and driven a wedge between even those who support climate change solutions
  • how to combat climate doomism
With immensely powerful vested interests aligned in defense of the fossil fuel status quo, the societal tipping point won't happen without the active participation of citizens everywhere aiding in the collective push forward. This book will reach, inform, and enable citizens everywhere to join this battle for our planet.
This looks timely, and I'm sure a lot of people are going to read it, including me. And probably including President Joe Biden.
