This Week
Rotary Moment/Bio
           
     Stan Turney talked through his Bio/Rotary Moment.  Stan was born in 1947 in Rockford, Illinois. He is an only child.  His father became a home builder after WWII and this led to Stan developing an interest in Civil Engineering.  He holds the record for the least number of career points scored in basketball games at Valparaiso University – one point from a foul shot.  He graduated in Civil Engineering from Valparaiso, was drafted into the army, was sent to Ft. Huachuca and got married.  Following his service in the Army he worked in Tucson and Southern California.  Eventually he returned to Tucson for a career in geological engineering.  He joined Rotary and is currently the third longest member of our club.  He was club president about 30 years ago and attended the Rotary Convention in Portland. Oregon where he gained a better perspective on how much Rotary does.

Program
Our speaker was Edward Beshore from Citizen’s Climate Lobby.  Prior to retirement he was the deputy principal investigator of UA’s ORIRIS-REX asteroid sample return mission.  He has been involved in climate studies for a long time and was pleased to see the Rotary concern with climate change in the most recent issue of the magazine.  Americans now support action on climate change.  A majority of Americans believe:  global warming is real: humans are contributing to the climate change; and they are worried about the global warming.   By the end of this century Tucson will experience summer high temperatures in the 120s, like Death Valley now.  80% of greenhouse gases come from fossil fuels.  If left unaddressed the changing climate has the potential to adversely impact all Americans.  Individual solutions are not enough.  The requirements for a solution must be:  effective – less than 14 tons annually of greenhouse gas per person in the US; good for people and the economy; and politically acceptable to all.  The Citizen’s Climate Lottery is the advocate for a “Carbon Fee and Dividend” plan.  This plan uses market based incentives rather than government regulations and subsidies.  And it is revenue neutral in that the consumers of carbon based fuels are taxed to provide an incentive to reduce carbon emissions and the revenue from the tax is then returned to households in the form of a monthly dividend to offset their higher costs for energy. The CCL has worked with state legislatures and the US House of Representatives to adopt this concept.  It is now core to House Bill 763.  As for alternatives:   the public is spooked by nuclear; and batteries need much higher energy density.
