OHIO HISTORY CONNECTION CURATORS TALK ABOUT OUR PLANET AT THE COLUMBUS METROPOLITAN CLUB
CMC Forum on the environment. Brad Lepper on the far right; David Dyer seated on the far left.
On Wednesday July 9th, I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in a forum at the Columbus Metropolitan Club on the environmental problems facing our planet and what we should be doing to address those problems. It was especially gratifying to be sitting up there on the stage with my colleague here at the Ohio History Connection David Dyer, Curator of Natural History. It was a pretty wide-ranging discussion with a lively Q&A at the end. I was a little disappointed with the title — “Really Smart Guys Talk About Our Planet.” I would have been happier if, instead, the title had been “Guys Who Have Worked Really Hard to Learn a Lot About Our Planet And Want to Share What They’ve Learned.” I guess I understand why the organizers opted for the shorter title, but I was uncomfortable with being labeled a “Really Smart Guy” as opposed to a hard-working scientist.
