and for the last 9 years have been one of the numerous `skeptics' speaking
out publicly against the Global Warming scare, which makes exaggerated claims
that the earth will warm by +1.5 to +6 deg. C. due to an enhanced Greenhouse
and climate change has been a lifelong study of his life since his early days
as a ship's officer in the British Merchant Navy. He has lived through and
traced the progress of the `ice age' scare of the 1970's, the `nuclear winter'
scare of the 1980s, and now the `global warming' scare of the present. All
these scares have advanced the interests of what was a small academic discipline
30 years ago to become a mammoth global industry today. It was his view that
this industry has, through the `politics of fear' which it has promoted, acted
against the interests of the public.

Five years of studies at Gral. Paz Military Lyceum, Córdoba, graduated as Second Lieutenant, Infantry. Spent three years studying Aeronautical and Mechanical Engineering at Córdoba National University. In 1960 took a course on commercial art at the Art Student's League in New York, and on return to his country, spent years in the field of advertising, technical and scientific photography, and the production of movie and TV commercials. This led him to conduct a long expedition to the Amazon jungle in 1970, descending the Amazon River from Iquitos, Perú, to Manaus, Brazil. Once there, was invited to participate in a "Jungle Survival, and Guerrilla Warfare" course, being taught at the "Centro de Operaçoes na Selva e Açoes de Commando" (COSAC), from the Brazilian Army, graduating as "Jungle Expert".
Director of the Board at his family industry, limestone and lime factory, in charge of many functions related with quality control & production, public relations, advertising and computing.
At the same time colaborated with his brother - scientific researcher in Neurophysiology and Professor at Córdoba National University, Dr. Horacio Ferreyra - in the Institute of Medical Research "Merce-des & Martín Ferreyra" in Córdoba, helping in the area of electronics and scientific photography.
In January 1980, conducted an expedition into a Jivaro indian tribe on the Wichimi River, in the Ecuadorian Amazon, few miles from the Peruvian border. He went along with César Miranda, Emerit Professor at the National University in Córdoba, Argentina, and together made a research that suggested the Jivaro indians came from Okinawa, Japan. This theory should be further researched by the analysis and comparison of chromosomes between Jivaros and people in Okinawa.
In 1983 was the head of the Technical Translations Dept. at AECL, (Atomic Energy of Canada, Ltd) the canadian company that built the Embalse Nuclear Power Generating Station in the province of Córdoba, Argentina. In 1984, was transferred to CONARCAN, (Argentinean-Canadian Consortium) in charge of the construction of the hydroelectric complex at Piedra del Águila, (Michihuao, Pichi Picún Leufú), in the Argentinean Patagonia.
In 1990, founded FAEC (Argentinean Foundation for a Scientific Ecology), along with some other concerned professionals, University professors and journalists, worried by the overwhelming misinformation and scientific frauds plaguing the environmental field.
In 1995, moved to Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia, starting the construction of a "base of operations" for Adventure Travel and Eco-tourism, in the Guarayos region, deep in the Bolivian Amazon jungle. He was followed in this project by professor Miranda, also a member of FAEC, and a longtime comrade of amazonian adventures. During the building of the Anaconda Lodge, they took travelers downriver into the jungle, advising them in survival techniques, ethnological and scientific information about animal and vegetal species, as well in basic techniques of photography, video taping and special care of the equipments.
In 1998 both returned to Córdoba, Argentina, where they still hope some investor will like to make a "joint-venture" in order to finish the Anaconda Lodge project (see here details of the project and pictures)
