I'm a tenured professor of environmental science at the University of California, San Diego. Besides teaching, I've been deeply involved with research in predictive modeling at the San Diego Supercomputer Center. We simulate various sequences of events in order to see what impact certain conditions have on local and global ecology. My work led me to postulate the CUE (Cause Unto Effect) Principle, which states that there is a factor common to all ecological crises that, when it's discovered, will reveal the single fundamental cause. I've written Sacred Mission to chronicle the surprising appearance and subsequent influence of the Society of Folk on my work and also events leading to a planetary crisis that requires your awareness and involvement to resolve. This is a call to action.
