Edwin X Berry, PhD, CCM
Dr. Edwin Berry is CEO of Climate Physics, LLC, in Bigfork, Montana.
He received his BS in Engineering from the Caltech, his MA in Physics from Dartmouth, and his PhD in Physics from the University of Nevada. Berry’s PhD mentor was Winterberg, the top student of Heisenberg. Berry’s PhD thesis is still cited as a breakthrough in the physics of rain and in numerical modeling.
Berry is an American Meteorological Society (AMS) Certified Consulting Meteorologist (CCM), and a pilot, with glider, power, and instrument ratings. Berry was chief scientist for Nevada’s Desert Research Institute airborne research facility. He was the only civilian in a Department of Defense (DOD) top-secret weather modification project.
Berry was National Science Foundation’s Program Manager for Weather Modification, where he managed the Metropolitan Meteorological Experiment (METROMEX), the National Hail Research Experiment (NHRE), and university research.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) used Berry’s methods to reduce wind shear accidents at major airports. The California Energy Commission funded Berry to perform the southern California desert wind-energy study. Berry has been an expert witness in many climate-related legal trials.
His courtroom numerical model involving climate helped win a major criminal trial. Berry’s model later won the “People’s Choice Award” at Microsoft’s “Windows World Open” software contest.
The University of Nevada Alumni Association awarded Berry with its Professional Achievement Award.
Berry led Montana’s successful fight against the “Our Children’s Trust” climate lawsuit.
In sports, Berry has won international and national sailing competitions, track events, and currently holds first places in Concept 2 worldwide rowing competition.
Berry has self-funded his climate research since 2001. His website, edberry.com, provides climate education and information for the public. His current abstract to an AMS Conference shows human emissions contribute less than 18 ppm to the present 400 ppm, and, therefore, do not cause climate change.
