Speaker Presentation: David Dilley was our guest speaker. He is the C.E.O of Global Weather Oscillations, and has 42 years of meteorology experience, which studies climate changes. He came prepared with a power point presentation and explained how temperature and weather patterns affect our local weather and daily lives. He went on to tell us that we will be experiencing a major global cooling in 2020. These cycles occur every 230 years. He spoke

about gravitational cycles, and how global warming is dangerous, yet global cooling is not, and explained in detail about these cycles known as “Milankovich cycles.” Mr. Dilley was very knowledgeable and we were grateful that he joined us this week.

Cheers to a great week!
