UPDATE: Here’s the archive of this week’s DeSmog Weekly on Climate TV with Dr. Michael Mann and Brad Johnson.

This week on Climate TV’s DeSmog Weekly program I had the pleasure of interviewing top climate scientist, and Real Climate blogger, Dr. Michael Mann, along with Brad Johnson, Researcher and blogger at the Center for American Progress.

As most DeSmog regulars know already, Dr. Mann has been at the center of many attacks by the climate deniers and conspiracy theorists. We talk about that and much more.

The interview will run tomorrow at 4pm pacific, 7pm eastern here on Climate TV. I will be on throughout the interview taking comments.

See you then!
