Climate science communication
Mandia is very active in advocacy that takes the position that climate change, specifically global warming, is a threat to contemporary human habitats. To this end, he maintains a website titled “Global Warming: Man or Myth?”, included at the “Start Here” tab of RealClimate.org. Mandia also writes about climate change and politics at his blog.
Climate Science Rapid Response Team matchmaker service
Mandia is a co-founder and matchmaker of the Climate Science Rapid Response Team, matching media and government individuals who have climate questions, to working climate scientists with the expertise to answer them.
In addition to climate change, Mandia has written on the subject of Long Island hurricanes. especially the New England Hurricane of 1938, known locally as the “Long Island Express” and prognostication on the future vulnerability of Long Island to hurricanes.
Learning modules for college students
Mandia has also published a series of weather and climate learning modules titled Investigations in Atmospheric Sciences that are geared toward non-science major college students.
In July, 2010, Mandia was threatened with a libel lawsuit by Christopher Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, a vocal climate change skeptic. As of June 2014, none had been filed.
