Dr. Abraham is a thermal sciences professor at the University of St. Thomas. Recently, he became internationally known for debunking the world’s leading climate change skeptic at the time, Christopher Monckton. After the debunking, Monckton threatened Dr. Abraham with legal action and mounted a publicity campaign against his university. Despite this, Abraham, and his university stood firm and now are recognized as major international players in climate change.
