Michael J. Oard

Retired from the National Weather Service, meteorologist Mike Oard gives fascinating illustrated talks—at an easy-to-understand level—on the compelling evidence for Noah's Flood and the Ice Age that resulted, and how the incredible wooly mammoth connects to biblical history. Based in beautiful Montana, Michael is now accepting invitations to speak all over North America, even with just a few weeks’ notice. Michael is married to Beverly and they have four children and four grandchildren.
