David M. Romps is a Professor of Climate Physics in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkeley. Prof. Romps studies the fundamental physics of climate and educates students and the public about global warming. He received a B.S. in math and a B.S./M.S. in physics from Yale University and a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University. Motivated by concerns about climate change, he left the field of string theory to work on climate policy at the Woods Hole Research Center and on atmospheric dynamics at Harvard's Center for the Environment. He then joined the faculty at UC Berkeley and currently teaches the popular course Introduction to Climate Change. He is on Twitter @romps.

His essay, "I Refuse to Stand by While My Students are Indoctrinated," was published in April on Bari Weiss's "Common Sense" Substack. He's currently writing a book documenting the impact on K-12 education of the growing DEI consultant industry. You can find him on Twitter @pauldrossi.
