Daniel Brouse


Daniel graduated from West Chester East High School in 1980. Bolstered by an academic scholarship, he pursued his undergraduate studies at West Chester University, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and Economics with a minor in Philosophy. Displaying prowess in math and science, Daniel became WCU's inaugural statistics tutor. In 1984, he graduated Magna Cum Laude, gaining induction into the Phi Sigma Tau international honor society for philosophers and Pi Gamma Mu, the oldest and premier honor society in the social sciences.

Real-world success in real estate, banking, finance, and investment solidified Daniel's multidisciplinary expertise. Whether immersed in music, economics, or the physical sciences, research and development remained integral to his pursuits. Risk management in the realm of economics would soon emerge as a pivotal focus.

Science and Technology
Daniel's early aptitude in geology, biology, anthropology, meteorology, chemistry, physics, and astronomy laid the foundation for a lifelong preoccupation with science and technology. Remarkably, by the age of 18, he had developed the world's first computer program for filing federal tax returns. In his 20s, Daniel collaborated with physicist Sidd Mukherjee from Ohio State University, pioneering much of the original worldwide web. Together, they created the first web-based publishing platform for artists and scientists, notably through The Philadelphia Spirit Experiment Publishing Company (membrane.com) and the global platform KingArthur.com. The duo published groundbreaking research on climate change, being among the first to recognize its exponential rather than linear progression.

"I am a scientist, economist, and journalist publishing articles and papers since 1994. As part of a collective of scientists, we have been working on the greatest risk to humankind -- humans. Much of my effort has been spent on Anthropogenic Climate Change. In addition, I have specialized in pollution, diseases, health and wellness, and rate of change," remarked Daniel.

In 2020, Daniel initiated research into the antigen response to SARS-CoV-2, publishing his first paper on May 26, 2020, titled "COVID-19 and Air Pollution." Subsequently, he authored numerous papers on COVID, exploring facets such as "long-COVID: What we know about Long Haulers Syndrome," "COVID in Your Genes," "COVID: The Natural Immunity Myth," "COVID, Vitamin B3 (Nicotinic Acid), and the Immune System," "NAD+ Plus Immune System Diet," and "COVID Mutation and Variant Threats."

New Economics
In 2023, Daniel published "The Age of Loss and Damage (Climate Change Economics and the Exponential Costs to Society)." This groundbreaking work introduces a novel perspective on economics by merging economics, climate science, statistics, and physics. Departing from traditional economic models ill-equipped to comprehend the full scope of climate damage, Daniel's approach rejects the limitations of "integrated assessment models" (IAMs). Instead, he advocates for considering alternative functions, like the exponential model, better suited for capturing rapid changes in the context of climate change. The Age of Loss and Damage economics focuses on the exponential costs of climate change to society, departing from the conventional "costs and benefits" approach.

* Our climate model employs chaos theory to comprehensively consider human impacts and projects a potential global average temperature increase of 9℃ above pre-industrial levels. Global warming is a consequence of elevated thermal energy in the climate system, which comprises various subsystems. Chaos theory underscores the intricate and nonlinear nature of dynamic systems. Human well-being is compromised above a 1.5-degree temperature rise, rendering much of the Earth uninhabitable. A 9-degree Celsius increase would bring the Earth close to a wet-bulb temperature incapable of sustaining human life.

What Can I Do? There are numerous actions you can take to contribute to saving the planet. Each person bears the responsibility to minimize pollution, discontinue the use of fossil fuels, reduce consumption, and foster a culture of love and care. The Butterfly Effect illustrates that a small change in one area can lead to significant alterations in conditions anywhere on the globe. Hence, the frequently heard statement that a fluttering butterfly in China can cause a hurricane in the Atlantic. Be a butterfly and affect the world.

In 1997, his mentor Sidd Mukherjee remarked, "You do not suffer fools gladly."
In 2007, his son Christopher Brouse astutely observed, "Dad, you are a little too smart for your own good."
