About

      I received an Associate Degree in Civil Engineering at Vermont Technical College and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Arizona in Tucson. I live in Europe and help my wife, the owner of a small business that provides communication services for business and industry.

I’ve always been a skeptic of the AGW hypothesis, and view myself solely as a critical spectator in the climate change debate and arena. I’m not convinced of any one particular position.

As a boy I had a strong interest in meteorology and even dreamed of becoming one for a time. I often read weather charts and was intrigued by extreme weather events. I can recall many extreme weather events occurring back in the 60s and 70s. That’s one reason of many why I think what’s happening today is nothing unusual. In fact, if the media stopped hyping it up, most people wouldn’t even notice “climate change”.

I believe that the activities of man have a modest impact on the climate and environment, but more through landuse and poor waste management practices. For the most part, I believe the forces of nature overwhelm anything man puts out. Man probably has contributed one tenth or two tenths of a degree C warming over the past century.

As Danish economist Proj Bjorn Lomborg says, the focus of public policy and resources really needs to be on solving real problems that exist today like water pollution, poverty, mal-nutrition, urban squalor, education, tyranny and so on, and not on computer-generated catastrophe scenarios that might or might not occur 100 years from now. Too many governments use AGW as an excuse for their policy failures – claiming all problems are due to AGW, and not their own often stupidity or self interest.

I’m not funded by anyone except by my own modest means, and I do not take any donations. This is strictly for fun, learning and free speech.

    You maybe interested in a climate model I built over the past dozen years. I provided you a link to a monthly report I publish on my website. which describes my model and methods. I’ll be updating it again in two weeks when the new NASA data in their monthly LOTI is published but I do not expect any change. It supports the paper you just translated from a different direction.

    Where were you born may I ask? How long have you been in Germany?

    Two leading US scientists acclaim Australian climate book

    Two leading USA scientists have acclaimed a little known book for its remarkable ability to show everyday people, not just scientists, the wonder of the climate system and how carbon dioxide is not driving modern climate change. The accolades are from world famous physicist, Emeritus Professor William Happer (who has advised President Trump on climate change), Princeton University, and Dr Willie Soon, Senior Researcher, Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics.

    The short 175 page book, Mirrors and Mazes; A guide through the climate debate, was written by Dr Howard Thomas Brady, an award-winning Australian scientist who studied in the USA and went on 4 expeditions to Antarctica with the US Office of Polar Programs. The Kindle version of this book has just been released with Happer and Soon’s recommendations on the back cover. The paperback version (2nd Edition) was released earlier in March 2017. The reader is invited to enter the climate debate, likened to a twisting maze or hall of mirrors, with dead-ends, illusions, traps – that are the lies, misinformation, over-simplifications and false prophecies.

    The recommendations are:

    “My bookshelf has many professional and popular books on climate, but I am especially fond of a recent addition, “Mirrors and Mazes.” The author, Dr. Howard Thomas Brady, is uniquely qualified to write this “guide through the climate debate.” Leaving a youthful career as a Catholic priest to pursue his fascination with science, Dr. Brady made many important contributions to geology, notably in studies of Antarctica, where he did extensive fieldwork during the Ross Ice Shelf Drilling Program.

    Mirrors and Mazes is written for intelligent laymen who like to think for themselves. The book reviews all of the issues that touch on the current climate debate: the nature of greenhouse gases; clouds; the sun; sea level; extreme weather; polar ice; etc.

Leaving a youthful career as a Catholic priest to pursue his fascination with science, Dr Brady made many important contributions to geology, notably in studies of Antarctica, where he did extensive fieldwork during the Ross Ice Shelf Drilling Program.

    Equations are avoided, but numbers are given when essential, for example, in discussions of rising sea level, where Dr Brady is an expert. There are well-chosen illustrations and good references for those who would like to dig deeper. Dr Brady’s discussions of the complicated interplay of the climate movement with religion, politics and the media are especially insightful, perhaps because of his youthful training in theology.

    I am especially fond of Mirrors and Mazes. It would be an excellent addition to the personal library of anyone who wants to understand climate facts, stripped of propaganda and emotion.”

    “Mirrors and Mazes is a beacon of light to see through the cloudy attempts to demonize CO2 as the satanic gas of our times. It is a must read and welcome contribution to the educational aspect of this hot scientific debate.”

    The Kindle (US$7.99) and paperback (US$18.00) versions are available here from Amazon.
