author and world traveler
Dr. Erickson is a best-selling author of five pro-science books, a former bush pilot in
Alaska and Canada, a retired dentist, a former VP of the American Humanist Association,
a member of the National Center for Science Education and a member of the Thorium Energy
Alliance, which consists of about 300 physicists, engineers, MDs, energy experts and
journalists who are deeply concerned about climate change, the environment and energy issues|
He occasionally exchanges climate change / energy emails with Dr. James Hansen, the former chief
scientist at NASA whom George Bush tried to silence on climate change - and he often
quotes Dr. Hansen in his fifth book, Unintended Consequences: The Lie That Killed
Millions and Accelerated Climate Change.
In Unintended Consequences, he exposes the lie that created our extreme radiation
safety standards, the damage those regulations have caused and his dismay with "greens"
who profit from promoting 30% efficient, carbon-reliant solar panels and bird, bat
and human-killing, CO2-producing windmills, but oppose 90% efficient, environment-friendly,
CO2-free, super-safe, nuclear power.
Because of the increasing damage from climate change, he has made the 2020
