Physicist; Fellow of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry
Dr. Mark Boslough is a Caltech-trained experimental and computational physicist whose research interests range from nuclear explosions to climate change. He is regularly seen on science documentaries and news reports explaining his research on planetary impacts and participating in expeditions to remote and exotic destinations around the world. Boslough is a passionate advocate for objective assessment of all risks to humanity--including those that are self-inflicted. He is a vocal defender of climate science from political attacks, and is a debunker of extraordinary claims of global warming deniers. He also uses humor as a defense against pseudoscience. His most widely-circulated piece is a thinly-disguised spoof of creationists in the form of a satirical April Fools' Day news story about the Alabama legislature's vote to change Pi to it's "biblical value" of exactly 3. These efforts led to his selection as a Fellow of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry.
