Don Corrigan of Webster University and the author of "Show Me . . . Nature's Wrath: Tornadoes, Floods, Ice Storms, And Other Natural Disasters" will join us for a presentation and discussion about climate change and its impact on Missouri.
Don will also share his views on climate change reporting from the perspective of an environmentalist journalist.
From Don's book:
Enter the pages of "Show-Me... Nature's Wrath" and you will soon find yourself experiencing the horrors of destruction wrought by freak hail storms and fatal lightning bolts. This weather compendium is packed with tales of supercell tornadoes smashing into towns large and small - from as far back as 1880 and as recently as yesterday. Also included are the alternating calamities of drought and flood, as well as the blizzards and ice storms ushered into Missouri by winter's winds of Thor.
With prose accounts by journalist Don Corrigan, and with detailed photo illustrations and newspaper front pages recalling the worst that weather has to offer, "Show-Me... Nature's Wrath" is at once a historic chronicle of the forces of nature and a prized keepsake.
