    Dr. Monty Hempel, environmental scientist and professor at the University of Redlands

Dr. Monty Hempel is a nationally recognized and published environmental scientist who can speak with authority about climate change and global warming, both the process and effect of each. 

"The new abnormal in climate disruption includes a new normal in weather extremes:  polar vortexes tilting toward the American midwest at the same time that record heat grips places like Australia.  Meanwhile, the planet as a whole continues to heat up, rain down, storm around, and melt away, often at accelerating rates." 

Dr. Hempel holds a Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University, in government and environmental policy; master's degree in international environmental policy.
