World-renowned climatologist, geophysicist, and author Michael E. Mann has been a major figure in efforts to further global understanding and awareness of human-caused climate change for decades.

Mann is distinguished professor of atmospheric science at Pennsylvania State University, and his work includes more than 200 peer-reviewed and edited publications on climate change, as well as several books.

In the latest in our series of interviews profiling the speakers taking part at this month's Net Zero Festival, Mann reflects on climate tipping points, net zero superpowers, and the moment he decided to switch from studying quantum mechanics to climate science.

Michael E. Mann's book, The New Climate War: The Fight to Take Back Our Planet, is out now.
