Dear Colleagues and Friends of Murry Salby,
You all know the excellent scientific work of Prof. Murry Salby published in his books, hundreds of papers and conference contributions and also presented in several videos. But some of you might not be aware that Murry passed away earlier this year. I recently made contact with Murry’s son who confirmed that his father died of a rapid unforeseen illness while he was visiting his son in Melbourne. His son has given me permission to inform you of this directly through this email.
Murry was one of the few real experts in atmospheric physics and climate science. He had extensively studied the main processes controlling the Earth-Atmosphere System and was able to deduce from this the true connections of increasing greenhouse gases and a changing climate. In times that are more determined by pseudo-science than serious climate science we have lost an important voice standing up for the true values in science and research and, even more so, in spite of the great personal attacks and existential impairments he had to bear over recent years. We pay the greatest tribute to the deceased for his extensive scientific work which has contributed to a much deeper understanding of climate processes.
We mourn the loss of a great colleague and friend.
You can find the three most important last papers of Murry Salby and Hermann Harde here:
Salby & Harde 2021 Control of Atmospheric CO2 Part I.
Salby & Harde 2021 Control of Atmospheric CO2 Part II.
Salby & Harde 2022 Theory of Increasing Greenhouse Gases (Preprint).
