Host: Kim Monson & Dave O’Rourke

Guests: Richard Geyer, PhD, Physicist and Walter E. Johnson, Geophysicist and Executive Producer of the documentary A Climate Conversation


A Climate Conversation Podcast 

Welcome to our podcast in support of A Climate Conversation, a documentary that seeks to foster an honest dialogue on the subject of climate change—its causes, its impact, and a science-based cost/benefit analysis of its potential solutions.


Richard Geyer is a Doctor of Engineering, Sr Research Physicist and a senior instructor in physics at the University of Colorado. He is the president of Electromagnetics, Incorporated, a specialist in thru-the-earth magnetics among many fields of study, and author of over 100 peer-reviewed publications. 


Walter E. Johnson is a respected geophysicist, certified geologist and registered professional engineer who earned his degree from the Colorado School of Mines. Walt has written and published more than 20 papers and publications on his areas of expertise, including high-resolution and shear wave seismology, inversion, and direct detection techniques.  In 2022, he personally funded, wrote and produced A Climate Conversation, a documentary film that seeks to foster a transparent and inclusive approach to the topic of climate change. 


The podcast will cover one of the most important subjects in the climate debate: the impact on the environment, which fits into the general topic of costs and benefits of potential solutions. There has been little consideration of both the costs and the benefits amid the general hysteria and climate of crisis that surrounds this entire topic. 

The podcast will cover a number of topics, including:


  • A survey of energy sources and densities

  • A primer on heat energy and chemical reactions across energy sources

  • The efficiencies of alternative energy sources

  • An explanation of the role of carbon in Earth’s ecosystem

  • The long term history of atmospheric carbon dioxide   

  • The sociopolitical implication of materials sourcing

  • The toxicities of solar panels along their supply chain

  • The lack of any effective disposal/recycling of solar panels or wind turbines

  • The potentially devastating effects of waiving responsible environmental impacts in favor a crisis approach to energy management


“Fossil fuels bad, wind and solar good” is a formula for potentially devastating economic, social and political impacts. Both solar and wind are enormously expensive and relatively unreliable sources of electricity, and a thorough cost/benefit analysis should be done before irreversible changes to our energy grid are implemented. A Climate Change is intended to turn down the heat, and turn up the light. 


The truth is that net zero is not only virtually impossible to achieve (due to the scarcity of rare earths and the staggering costs of new solar and wind infrastructure), but appears to be entirely unnecessary. What is so often left unsaid is the fact that even if the USA were to achieve net zero by 2050, the impact on global temperatures would be negligible. 


Our film and this podcast are intended to educate our citizens so that they are equipped to make informed and rational decisions, not only for themselves, but for their children and grandchildren. We encourage you to share this podcast, and our film, with your loved ones and colleagues. The truth has a marvelous capacity to spread, and we appreciate your help in bringing sanity to this over-hyped topic.
