Dr. Peter Kalmus is a climate scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California (writing on his own behalf). His research interests include low clouds, tornadoes, ecological forecasting, and improving the utility of satellite climate records. He is the recipient of NASA’s Early Career Achievement medal, the author of the award-winning book Being the Change: Live Well and Spark a Climate Revolution, and the founder of noflyclimatesci.org. Knowing the long-lasting harm that it causes, Peter now loathes burning fossil fuel. He lives an outwardly normal life with his wife and two sons, but on about a tenth the fossil fuel of the average American.
