Deny it all you want, but the oceans are rising, and trillions of dollars worth of valuable Texas land and wealth will be lost as they do. Where is all this excess water coming from? The icecaps and glaciers are melting, pouring whole cubic miles of water into the ocean.
The culprit? Global Warming.
Scientists have already warned us that there is no way to stop this process in time to avert the loss of thousands of square miles of shoreline. Whole countries will disappear and others (including American states) will be reduced to a fraction of their current size.
What has happened? What can we do to heal our planet and get things back to “normal”? How will we make America big again?
To answer these vital Texas issues, Dr. Rebecca Dodge, Associate Professor and Graduate Program Coordinator of Geosciences at Midwestern State University presented “Challenging Climate Change Denial: Make It Personal” during the Wichita County Democratic Association’s monthly dinner meeting at Luby’s Cafeteria on April 20.
Dr. Dodge’s credentials make her one of the community’s leading experts on this subject. She received her BS degree in Geology from the University of Texas at Arlington, and her Master’s and Ph.D. in Geology from the Colorado School of Mines. She has over 25 years of service to the petroleum industry in leadership roles ranging from committee memberships and chairmanships to service as an officer in several geologic societies.
Last year, Dr. Dodge received an Honorary Member Award by the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, an organization which is especially important to the success of the Texas oil industry.
