The IEVPC is headquartered in Orlando, Florida. It operates worldwide through the branch offices of its associates scientists and contractors. Once its CGE Monitoring and Warning System (CMWS) is deployed, the IEVPC will establish on site facilities at high threat areas providing advanced notification of CGE events.

Bruce is a highly experienced geologist with extensive fieldwork worldwide with over 30 years of operational and managerial experience in the use of the latest state-of-the-art data acquisition and analysis technology. He received a BS in Geology in 1982 from the University of North Carolina in Wilmington, and an MS in Geology/Geophysics in 1991 from the University of Southern Mississippi, while working with the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVO) at Stennis Space Center. During Navy tenure (1985-2003), he worked primarily with the Geophysics Department acquiring and analyzing gravity, magnetic, seismic, bathymetric, and oceanographic data sets. This has included multi-beam and 3.5KHz seafloor mapping, oceanography, side scan sonar, gravity cores, current meter and tide-gauge deployments. Unique characteristics of classified seafloor datasets began to reveal New Concepts in Global Tectonics with global tectonic and regional structural interpretations that were unknown to academic research institutions. Leybourne’s follow on research began noting interesting links to climate change instigating a series of related publications considering a “Tectonic Forcing Function for Climate Modeling” (Leybourne, 1996). His specialty includes global gravity and marine magnetic data acquisition with offshore experience onboard seismic vessels acquiring gravity/magnetic data for oil and gas exploration with EDCON-PRJ in Denver, Colorado. He has performed in the field in such diverse locations as Australia, Greenland, Malaysia, India, Mexico, South America, Asia and Africa. Recent ongoing field investigations in Southwest U.S., especially in Utah, reveal electric geologic events of the past. In addition, Bruce is Principal Investigator and Research Director at Institute for Advanced Studies on Climate Change (IASCC) and owner-operator of Climate-Stat Inc.

Dr. Choi held a PhD in Geology from Hokkaido University, Japan. He was a specialist in global tectonics and was the editor in chief of the New Concepts in Global Tectonics (NCGT) Journal published in Australia. He was also Director of Raax Australia Pty Ltd. a geo-engineering company in Canberra, Australia. He was a primary co-author of the just released (December 14, 2016) book "Upheaval! - Why Catastrophic Earthquakes Will Soon Strike the United States." Sadly, Dr. Choi died in 2018.

The Board of Directors (BOD) for the IEVPC was recently established along with the registration of the IEVPC in the State of Florida. This BOD is expected to expand during the next few months as the response to invitations to join the BOD are processed. Membership on the board is expected to consist of a broad representation of leaders from a variety of fields and international backgrounds. This includes members from the media, government, technology management, aerospace, finance, etc., that may provide a wide range of expertise to aid the IEVPC in the accomplishment of its Mission.

Board of Directors

Bruce Leybourne – IEVPC CEO

Dr. Dong Choi, IEVPC Co-Founder


Louis A. G. Hissink, Editor in Chief and Director of Research

Louis A. G. Hissink M.Sc. MAIG (ret) MIEEE is the editor in chief of the New Concepts in Global Tectonics Journal. He is regarded as one of the top diamond geologists in Australia, having made numerous discoveries of kimberlite in Western Australia and New South Wales. He worked for the Planet Group of companies, Western Mining Corporation as a field and mining geologist, Stockdale Prospecting, the Australian arm of De Beers Diamonds and various smaller exploration companies until his retirement in 2013. He was editor of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists News from 2006 to 2013. His present focus is on the application of plasma physics to geology involving Electric Earth theory, and the forecasting of catastrophic geological phenomena.

Dr. Tad J. Choi - IEVPC Vice CEO

Tad is currently a New Ventures Manager for Petroleum Geo-Services (PGS) in their Asia-Pacific headquarters office in Kuala Lumpur. He received a BSc in Geology in 1994 from the Australian National University and an MSc & PhD in Geology and Geomorphology/Neotectonics in 2000 from Niigata University, Japan. He has published several papers on the basin evolution as well as the geomorphological deformation of the Tertiary Niigata Basin. He has nearly two decades working in the oil and gas industry primarily as an Explorationist, working with Woodside Energy and then a Principal Geoscientist with PGS. He has interpreted seismic data from regional to prospect scale from most of the prolific hydrocarbon bearing basins throughout NWS Australia and SE Asia.
