About Us 

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.

Board of Directors

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.

Bruce Leybourne – IEVPC Vice-CEO

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.

John L. Casey

Mr. John L. Casey. IEVPC Co-Founder and Director. Mr. Casey is also President of Veritence, Inc., a science and engineering consulting company and Veritence Publishing, Inc. a company established to aid scientists, nature and science-fiction authors to get their books published. He was, previous to 2015, the  President of the Space and Science Research Corporation (SSRC), a leading climate science research organization. Mr. Casey is a former White House space program advisor, NASA Headquarters and Congressional Consultant and was a Senior Field Engineer on the Space Shuttle program. He is a leading researcher on the science of solar activity cycles and their impacts on climate change and associated catastrophic geophysical events (CGE), including earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. He is also the author of the widely acclaimed climate science books including the 2011 climate book “Cold Sun,” its 2014 remake  and natiowide best seller, "Dark Winter," and the December 12, 2016 book "Upheaval! - Why Catastrophic Earthquakes Will Soon Strike the United States."
