George Erickson -
author and world traveler

spacer 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
spacer 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.
spacer 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.
spacer Because of the increasing damage from climate change, he has made the 2020 update of the PDF of this book available FREE from this page and from https://tinyurl.com/unincons. For the paperback, see Amazon.com.
spacer A prolific writer of climate change / energy op-eds, he travels the country at his own expense, giving climate change and energy presentations at colleges, schools, universities, service clubs and affinity groups.

spacer His 38 "summers" of exploring arctic Canada and Alaska with a variety of seaplanes led to his best seller, True North: Exploring the Great Wilderness by Bush Plane. (4 printings in the US and Canada.)
spacer His second book, Time Traveling with Science and the Saints - an overview of the long conflict between science and religion - soon followed, and his third book, Back to the Barrens: On the Wing with da Vinci & Friends, his much-requested sequel to True North, was published in mid- 2008.
