3 June 2013 — Jorge Vazquez Live! The Oceans and Climate Change

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

We have one planet.

That is why peace is so important–we’re going to have to co-exist, even with the people we don’t like, on this particular planet.

Maybe it is why Rotary is so important–when we talk about working to make the world a better place, it becomes more imperative when we take the extra moment to remember the obvious: we have one planet.

Carl Sagan said it best, so please click here to read his words about a pale blue dot. Then come back to this page for a phenomenal program, from our Sunday gathering on 2 June, learning about the one planet we’ve got.

THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

Slide01

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jorge Vazquez is a Rotarian, a skier, a darned good cook, for more than twenty years a purveyor of quality youth programs representing NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the owner (he denies it, but he must have one hidden) of an Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator…and, with his background in oceanography and geological sciences, the best person to teach us about how the oceans affect the global climate.

His JPL bio doesn’t do him justice, but here it is.

Jorge was kind enough to answer our many questions, and the video of that portion of the day follows:
