About the Book

The world public is woefully uninformed. And there is hardly a lack of information greater than in the realm of science, or it’s not presented in common terms that the majority of the public can understand. This ignorance can be abused by those in power wanting to further their agendas.

The climate change debate is fueled by the assumption that climate variability can be controlled by man-made changes in planetary dynamics greater than natural atmospheric oscillations, that the use of fossil fuels causes these changes, and that two hundred years of data out of thousands is enough to prove or disprove the destruction of our planet by humans.

That mankind has this kind of influence—as insignificant in space and time as it is compared to the size, age, and energy of creation—is within the shadow of reason and doubt. Yet as the only known survivor of creation and the only known conscious life in the universe, mankind has sole stewardship and the responsibility and duty to harness the energy of the universe, use it to its advantage, and respect it.

About the Author

The author, a practicing earth scientist, has specialized in the evaluation of environmental data for 36 years, since obtaining a master of science degree in geology in 1980. As part of his career in academia, industry and state government, he has studied the complex interactions and patterns associated with environmental variability, including sea level rise, water quality, and climate, publishing several research papers along the way.
He holds a professional license in the practice of the geosciences in the State of Louisiana. His work and play in South Louisiana bayou country, in an area of the country ravaged by hurricanes, sea level rise, land loss, and human impact, along with a deep personal faith, inspired him to follow a career path that promotes the betterment and balance of society toward stewardship and the responsible utilization of resources, without compromising human advancements in technology, commerce, entertainment, comfort, and life expectancy.
He currently lives, works, and prays in Baton Rouge, Louisiana along with his wife. They have a spoiled dachshund and often share time with their three grandchildren under an electrical system augmented with solar cell technology.
