Dr Geoff Davies is a scientist, an occasional commentator, and the author of Economia: New Economic Systems to Empower People and Support the Living World (ABC Books, 2004).

He is a Senior Fellow in geophysics at the Australian National University and has authored 100 scientific papers and a scientific book.

In 2005 he was awarded the inaugural Augustus Love medal for geodynamics by the European Geosciences Union, and he has been honoured as a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union.

His day job does not directly involve either climate science or economics, but he has long experience in assessing fractious debates on difficult topics. His commentaries have appeared in New Matilda, Australasian Science and The Canberra Times.
