John L. Casey[1] is an American author. Casey's literary works include Dark Winter and Cold Sun. His current residence is Orlando, Florida.[2]

Career[edit]

Casey received his B.S in physics and math from Jacksonville State University and his MA in Management from Webster University.[3][4]

Casey's first book, Cold Sun, was published on May 1, 2011.[5] His second book, Dark Winter, which is a refinement of Cold Sun, was published on August 19, 2014.[6] Casey's newest work, Upheaval, was published on December 14, 2016.[7] Unlike the first two of Casey's publications, Upheaval is primarily about his predictions of future, potentially catastrophic earthquakes occurring in the United States.[8] In 2016, Casey's book Dark Winter, was adapted into an hour-long documentary by Newsmax TV.[9]

Casey's biographical page says that he is the President of the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), which shut down in August 2015.[10] He is also currently the acting CEO of the International Earthquake and Volcano Prediction Center (IEVPC).[11] Casey is currently the acting president of the Veritence Corporation, a science and engineering consultation company.[12]

Theory[edit]

Casey has written two books which deny that global temperatures are rising and argue that earth is threatened with solar hibernation. [13]

Global cooling is the central theory presented in Casey's Cold Sun and Dark Winter. Casey's theory, in particular, revolves around the belief that industrial CO2 emission is not severe enough to cause a change in earth's climate and that climate change is entirely impacted by the sun. Dark Winter also makes note that global climate cooling would begin approximately 3–14 years past Casey's initial discovery.[14]

According to Casey, the earth is currently going through an interglacial warm period, a rare time of reprieve from an otherwise cold earth.[15] This period of warmth essentially serves as Casey's explanation for the exponential growth of human civilization in the past few millennia.[16] Moreover, Casey makes note that this period of warmth and prosperity, according to his calculation, is on the brink of ending.[17]

Casey's theory also emphasizes the importance of sunspot patterns in determining the sun's effect on earth's climate.[18] His belief is that the numerous sunspot patterns that have been observed throughout earth's history have affected the global climate in various ways. Casey's theory is that the sun is currently within a 206-year cycle and that a drastic cycle change is imminent. He believes this cycle change will lead to the severe cooling down of the earth.[19]

Another central point in Casey's global cooling theory is the lack of counter strategy in regards to the advent of an ice age.[20] Casey states that "solar hibernation" is ultimately inevitable and that the sun will continue to cycle into its next stage regardless of the actions of the common man.
