Weekly Roundup – Michal Mann, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jessica Valenti

Happy Wednesday everyone! Catch up with the latest news from our headlining speakers –

Hot enough for you? According to climatologist Michael Mann, it’s only going to get hotter. Quoted in a recent TIME Magazine article, Mann says “If we continue to burn fossil fuels and increase the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, we will assume that this level of warmth will be perpetual.”


You have to love the headline: “Neil deGrasse Tyson is a Weasel“! In the new animated feature Ice Age – Collision Course Dr. Tyson will voice the character of Neil deBuck Weasel. Check out the article – and the picture (see the resemblance?)


Jessica Valenti’s new book is a memoir – Sex Object, in which the daily harassment she faces (as do most women) accumulate to a soul-crushing weight. Not a light read- but an important one, especially for men who still think the “wolf whistle” is a compliment.
