*Idso, Ph.D., Craig

    Dr. Craig Idso is the President of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, where he has worked since its inception in January of 1998.  He received his B.S. in Geography from Arizona State University, his M.S. in Agronomy from the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, and his Ph.D. in Geography from Arizona State University, where he studied as one of only a handful of University Graduate Scholars.

    Craig’s research interests include various aspects of global and environmental change, including climatology and meteorology, along with their impacts on agriculture. 

    He has published scientific articles on issues relating to data quality, the growing season, the seasonal cycle of atmospheric CO2, and urban CO2 concentrations. The latter item was investigated via a National Science Foundation grant as a faculty researcher in the Office of Climatology at Arizona State University.

    In addition he has lectured in Meteorology at Arizona State University as well as in Physical Geography at Mesa and Chandler-Gilbert Community College.

*Idso Ph.D., Keith

    Dr. Keith Idso is Vice President of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change.  He received his B.S. in Agriculture with a major in Plant Sciences from the University of Arizona and his M.S. from the same institution with a major in Agronomy and Plant Genetics.  He completed his Ph.D. in Botany at Arizona State University.

    During the early 1990s, Dr. Idso became interested in how Earth's plant life responds to increasing levels of atmospheric CO2; and in 1992 produced the most comprehensive literature review on that topic to date. Two years later, he senior-authored a peer-reviewed paper with his father, Dr. Sherwood Idso, that addressed plant responses to increased levels of atmospheric CO2 when growth conditions are less than optimal.

    As a graduate student, Dr. Idso developed a love for teaching and won several top awards while instructing students in biological and botanical laboratories and lectures at ASU.  He maintains a working relationship with the university and periodically teaches classes within their new plant biology program as a Faculty Associate.

    Dr. Idso has also been teaching general biology courses as an Adjunct Professor in the Maricopa County Community College District since 1996.  During his final semester at ASU, he coordinated a Service Learning Program that delivered science curricula bi-weekly to fifth grade students at the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community Elementary School.

    In 1999, Dr. Idso was appointed by the Arizona Speaker of the House of Representatives to serve on the Arizona Advisory Council on Environmental Education, which ensures that state funds will only be given to support environmental education programs in Arizona's K-12 public schools that offer balanced viewpoints on environmental issues based on current peer-reviewed scientific literature.
