Dr. John Abraham is an Associate Professor of thermal and fluid Sciences at the University of St. Thomas School of Engineering, Minnesota.[1][2] His area of research includes thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid flow, numerical simulation, and energy. He has published approximately 100 papers in journals and conferences.[3]

Abraham has received worldwide attention for a rebuttal he posted online to a talk given in 2009 by a well-known skeptic of human-caused global warming, Christopher Monckton.[4]

Abraham's presentation and the response from Monckton received world-wide attention.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12] More recently, Abraham and a number of colleagues including Michael E. Mann submitted a document to the US Congress which rebutted nine alleged errors in Christopher Monckton's May 6, 2010 testimony.[13][14][15][16]

In November, 2010, Dr. Abraham (and two colleagues, Professor Scott Mandia and Dr. Ray Weymann) launched the Climate Science Rapid Response Team, to provide rapid, high-quality scientific information to the media and government decision makers. The intention of this group is to enable scientists to share their work directly with the general public. This effort has been covered by many media outlets.[17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28] The effort has an online page for media to submit their questions.[29]
