Most people see me as polite, friendly, casual, and competitive. A few, well, hate me because I stand by my principles of honesty, integrity, and truth against their opposition.

Sacramento, California, was a baseball town when I graduated from high school. Having played since the sixth grade, a pro team offered me a job. But I scored a perfect 800 in the SAT test and finished in half the allotted time, so I attended Caltech.

At Caltech, I was in the AF-ROTC pilot trainee program. But a week before graduation, Congress lowered the quota for pilots, so the Air Force gave me an honorable discharge. Nevertheless, I found the AF-ROTC classes interesting and valuable.

After Caltech, I worked for a summer in an engineering job and spent the evenings studying Kenpo Karate under Ed Parker.

Dartmouth College offered me a teaching fellowship allowing me to earn my MA in physics. In addition to physics, I studied Markov Chains and Philosophy of Science. That is when I choose atmospheric physics for my career.

The University of Nevada gave me a research fellowship to do my PhD thesis in atmospheric physics. My theoretical thesis showed how micron-sized cloud droplets can produce rain in 30 minutes by stochastic collision and coagulation. It turned out to be a breakthrough in cloud physics that put Nevada’s Desert Research Institute “on the map” as the then Director said. My thesis drew heavily from my Dartmouth studies in Markov Chains and the scientific method.

While a grad student, I worked out with the gymnastics team and became fairly good on the trampoline. I performed the athletic events to qualify for a Sigma Delta Psi National Athletic Honorary membership.

Over a Nevada dry lake one stormy day, I flew a sailplane, with no gyro, into a storm cloud with a strong updraft. I had to spin out of the storm to survive (with no gyro) and then, since a dust storm covered the dry lake, I had to make a zero-zero landing.

One Saturday, I was ridge-soaring east of Sparks, Nevada, when the wind suddenly quit. I spotted a small empty industrial parking lot in Sparks surrounded by a cyclone fence and nailed the landing with little room to spare. I wish we had GoPro cameras in those days. Sometimes I dream about that landing and wonder how I did it.

But I found sailing more fun than soaring because I can do it with women, and I can crash without burning. With my wife, Valerie, as crew, we won national and world championships in a competitive centerboard sailing class.

Today, I live in Bigfork, Montana, where I continue to be active in my chosen field. My research culminated in 2021 in my peer-reviewed paper that shows why the UN IPCC climate change claims are wrong and why there is no climate emergency. I can teach this physics to qualified high school students.

My goal is to help you and others understand the basic science that proves climate alarmists, and all their scientists, are wrong.

I plan to organize a group of Climate Warriors to help take climate change truth to the people. If you are on my email list, I will invite you to join me.
