Dennis Lanane: What's happening with climate change?

What is happening to our climate? Why all the sudden changes in our weather? Last year we had a severe drought while other areas in the U.S. were experiencing floods. Remember Sandy, the largest ever Atlantic Tropical with winds stretching 1,100 miles and all the flooding on the east coast? In the beginning of 2012 much of the United Kingdom experienced droughts and a heat wave in March. Flooding in Great Britain and Ireland brought the wettest April they had seen in over a hundred years.

It is scary. There are many tragedies and losses across the nation. Forest fires caused by droughts is an example. Nineteen firefighters died in what has been called the worst forest fire in Arizona history. What can we do? What should we do?

The July 18 Triad meeting will be about “Climate Change.” We will meet in the Anderson Mounds Mall at 10:30 a.m. In the theater area. Our speaker will be Paul Severance, founder of United Senior Action and served as Executive Director until 2006. Paul is also currently involved with Center for the New Elder which he is founder. Paul will put on a presentation about “Climate Reality.”

Triad wants to thank Dustin Ziegler from the Alzheimer’s Association for his presentation about how their agency has been working with first responders that might be victims of abuse or other crimes. We also want to thank Major Scott Mellinger of the Marion County Sheriff’s Department for explaining about the Crisis Intervention Team training(CIT) that has been going on in Marion County and in other areas of the state. Major Brian Bell of the Madison County Sheriff’s Department gave a crime report on some local issues.

Also Anderson Police Chief Larry Crenshaw gave a talk at the beginning of the meeting about the administration of the police department. Indiana State Police Detective A.J. Klettheimer participated. Also in attendance was Carol Davis, the Executive Director of United Senior Action(USA) and June Holt, our USA Traumatic Brain Injury expert.
