Is “Climate Change” real or isn’t it? It depends on your perspective. Are you watching climate patterns throughout the ages or just seeing changes in the last 20 years? Godon J. Fulks, Ph.D. has been watching climate at least his entire life and he has some intelligent perspective to offer. Bring your friends, your climate deniers, and your climate experts to our next district meeting. We’re going to help shed some light on the science of climate and give you a perspective that you can share with those who want you to follow the religion of climate change. Some actual science, won’t that be nice?

What: 47th District Meeting
Where: Golden Steer Restaurant - 23826 104th Ave SE, Kent, WA 98031
When: Thursday, 9/19/19, 6pm (Dinner), 7pm (Program)

Gordon J. Fulks, Ph.D.

Gordon J. Fulks, Ph.D. is an astrophysicist known locally for his many Op-Eds in The Oregonian on
Global Warming. One of them: “Kitzhaber is allowing Climate Malpractice” was printed only a few
weeks before Governor Kitzhaber resigned in disgrace. The very first of them in 2008, “Global
Warming: Climate Orthodoxy Perpetuates a Hoax,” criticized former Governor Kulongoski for forcing
State Climatologist George Taylor out of his position at Oregon State University because Taylor
expressed doubts about Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming (CAGW).

Dr. Fulks is currently one of eight Directors of the CO2 Coalition, a Washington, DC based nonprofit
dedicated to providing authoritative information about the amazing benefits of carbon dioxide. The
Coalition was founded by Princeton University of Professor of Physics Will Happer. Happer is now
President Trump's science advisor on the National Security Council. Other Directors include Dr.
Patrick Moore who co-founded Greenpeace and Dr. Harrison Schmitt who is the only scientist to have
ever walked on the moon.

Dr. Fulks’s background is similar to that of scientists promoting CAGW with notable exceptions: he
has never accepted ANY money to promote or oppose any theory because that is unethical, and he is
considerably more experienced than most who have.

He received a BS in Physics in 1967 and went on to get an MS and PhD in Physics, all from the
University of Chicago. He worked initially for the Laboratory for Astrophysics and Space Research at
the Enrico Fermi Institute of the University of Chicago studying the solar modulation of galactic
cosmic rays, using large charged-particle spectrometers flown in the Arctic. One crucial question at the
time was the size of the heliosphere filled by the solar wind blowing from the surface of the sun. The
prevailing view was that it was relatively small. In a paper published in 1975, Dr. Fulks argued that it
had to be huge, stretching beyond our solar system. Twenty years later, two NASA spacecraft finally
reached interstellar space, 8 billion miles from the sun and far beyond Pluto.

Dr. Fulks later worked for a think-tank in Santa Barbara, California, supporting the US Defense
Nuclear Agency on nuclear weapon effects. When that agency faded away at the end of the Cold War,
he supported the Department of State designing new embassies and working at the US Embassy in
Moscow. More recently, he has consulted for business and government clients seeking to better
understand electromagnetic phenomena, related scientific scares, and the concept of ‘acceptable risk.’

Dr. Fulks is an avid mountaineer, caver, orchid collector, and tree farmer. He has climbed most major
peaks in the Cascades and High Sierras and several major world peaks. He has also explored many
caves, including the deepest cave pits in the world, located in central Mexico. He grows many trees
including 360 Giant Sequoias (which are the largest of all living things and were once native to the
Pacific Northwest). His property east of the Sandy River near Corbett is maintained for wildlife
including Pileated Woodpeckers, the largest surviving North American woodpecker.
