Don J. Easterbrook (29 de enero de 1935 (82 años), Sumas, Estado de Washington) es un geólogo y profesor emérito estadounidense, en la Universidad Western Washington.

Afirma que el calentamiento global es causada principalmente por procesos naturales. Editó Evidence-Based Climate Science (Ciencia Climática Basada en Evidencia) (2011) un libro que sostiene que el aumento de las emisiones de CO2 no causan el cambio climático.

Predijo temperaturas globales más bajas que las proyecciones del IPCC.

​ Ha aparecido en el programa de la Headline News Glenn Beck y ha sido entrevistado por el New York Times.​

Otros miembros del Departamento de geología de la WWU, sin embargo, lo han criticado, y tratado de distanciarse de sus puntos de vista, después que Easterbrook testificara ante el Comité de Energía, Ambiente y Telecomunicaciones del Senado del Estado de Washington, de que el dióxido de carbono no causa ningún calentamiento global
