David Middleton has been a geologist/geophysicist in the oil & gas industry since 1981. He has spent most of his career working Miocene and Plio-Pleistocene plays in the Gulf of Mexico. David specializes in the integration of geological and geophysical data, focusing on mapping structural geology from 3d seismic data and analyzing direct hydrocarbon indicators (DHI’s or “bright spots”). He also has strong interests in paleoclimatology and Quaternary geology.
He has been a frequent contributor to the Watts Up With That? blog since 2011 and is currently an editor. https://wattsupwiththat.com/author/debunkhouse/
David earned a B.S. degree in earth science (geology concentration), with a minor in mathematics, in 1980 from Southern Connecticut State University. Having attended college in the late 1970’s in New Haven CT, he developed a deep appreciation for the perils of global cooling. He is also a lifelong dog lover and never ceases to be amazed at the fact that only about 40,000 years of evolution separate his Pomeranians from wolves.
David, his wife, Elizabeth, and their 11 dogs live in Dallas TX.
