Council Member Biography

Simon Atkins, PhD, DSc is an atmospheric scientist, a doctor of planetary risk, and climate economist. As CEO of Advanced Forecasting Corporation [AFC], a climate change hazard and planetary risk consulting think-tank, he provides ground-breaking insights, predictions and strategies to over twenty industries, Fortune 500 businesses, and investment groups affected by natural-based perils. With 25 years of experience in his trademarked "business interruption weather intelligence" and solar science, Dr. Atkins advises on vulnerability assessment hotspots for optimized portfolio management. He holds a BSc in atmospheric physics from Cornell University, an International MBA from the Helsinki School of Economics, a PhD from Clayton College of Natural Health (CCNH) in biometeoelectromagnetics (a study of how planetary magnetics causes shifts in climate and our health), and a Doctor of Science in Alternative Medicine from the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines (IBAM).

As an alternative health specialist, Dr. Atkins provides intelligence ranging from the effects of electromagnetic (EM) fields on humans like Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance attributed to Electromagnetic Fields such as from mobile phones (documented in medicine as IEI-EMF) to how natural EM fields are currently being harnessed, altered or even weaponized by advanced technologies such as EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) that have the ability to cause human immune dysfunction, lack of neurological control and other health disorders due to the interruption of normal cellular vibration / function. Through a decade of studying the Earth's magnetic field and geomagnetic storms, Dr. Atkins also provides knowledge on how EMP and variant technologies used to alter EM fields for purposes of war, mind control or negative health impacts is now becoming one of the most potentially destructive Black Swan events to affect a population or a portfolio.
