At the 2015 DAP Conference we offered a prize to anyone who looked up the Doomsday Clock. We had one winner. Why! "Learning occurs in direct proportion that it touches a felt need". If there is a priority to learn, you will learn. Due to Climate Change and Nuclear Weapon additions and upgrades, the Clock is set at 3 minutes to midnight. Midnight represents the end of humanity.
Drought and sea levels rising have a direct affect on the aquatic community. In California there was a ban on water consumption and pools couldn’t be filled. The ability to swim in coastal regions where the seas are rising and storms are increasing in severity is critical. There will be more and more critical analysis on these topics. This information is intended for my friends and colleagues around the world. We must live and enjoy our lives as if it were are last days. “To be forewarned is to be forearmed”.
