Andrew Sibley

Biography

Andrew Sibley worked as a meteorologist with the UK Met Office for 38 years before taking early retirement in 2021 to allow more time to engage in creation ministry with CMI, and sharing the gospel as a church elder. During his career, scientific specialisms were gained in weather observing and forecasting, and presenting the weather on BBC Radio Wales. Opportunities for travel led to time spent in Wales, Scotland, and England, and ten months in the Falkland Islands working alongside penguins and sea lions. He is married to Hydee, a Filipino, which has led to further travel to the Philippines and trying to learn the Bontoc dialect.

In later years his forecasting activity was focused upon monitoring and responding to environmental impacts at a national and international level; more specifically plume modelling of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear incidents, and Icelandic volcanoes. Andrew was also engaged in the development of a space weather forecasting programme as the lead forecaster, and subject matter expert. This involved pulling research through into the operational environment, and travel to America, Asia and Europe working with governmental partners and occasionally giving presentations.

Andrew has published a number of papers in the field of meteorology, gained Chartered Meteorologist accreditation, and recently served on the board of the Weather journal, including as an associate editor. He has a B.Sc. (Hons.) in the natural sciences from the Open University (UK), and completed an M.Sc. in Environmental Decision Making in 2003 with the same institution. He also gained an M.Phil in theology from Exeter University (UK); his dissertation was Intelligent Design: Scientific and Theological Perspectives. He is the author of a number of books; including Restoring the Ethics of Creation and Cracking the Darwin Code: Exploring the non-scientific foundations of deep-time and evolution.

Already a frequent contributor to CMI’s publications, he joined CMI-UK/Europe as an associate speaker and writer in February 2021, then came on staff in August 2021.
