The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC, has issued a stark warning: Many nations, including the US, are extremely vulnerable to climate change.
John Austin, PhD has over 30 years experience as a research scientist with over 80 papers published on the stratosphere. Dr. Austin holds a PhD in atmospheric sciences from the University of Cambridge, and a BA and MA in mathematics and physics.
Dr. Austin was the (sole!) winner of the 2003 Buchan Prize of the Royal Meteorological Society, and along with an almost uncountably large number of climate scientists, was a co-winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.
His main interest is the connection between ozone depletion and climate change.
Dr. Austin worked at the UK Meteorological Office 1978-2003 and at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, Princeton, NJ, USA, 2003-2010. He is currently running a publishing business, including popular science books and a specialist scientific journal.
In Dr. Austin's words:
"My current goal is to help bring scientific and environmental understanding to the community at large, through my writing at Decoded Science, and as owner of Enigma Scientific Publishing . I am an enthusiastic traveller and photographer. I love dogs and they love me."
