Steven Earle Ph.D. taught university Earth Science for almost four decades and is author of the widely used textbook, Physical Geology. He has also written A Brief History of the Earth's Climate (New Society $19.99), a guide to the Earth's climate that counters skeptics and deniers.

He also provides advice on action to take to mitigate the climate emergency. Earle lives on Gabriola Island with his family.
