  • Melisa’s speech, was an ice breaker and gave us a look into her life, education and career.
  • Ron’s speech suggested our environmental priorities were out of order and that loss of soil is the biggest challenge facing us. Maybe CO2 at 400 parts per million is not the problem some scientists make it out to be.
