Our hopes and prayers are for those suffering due to the terrible storms going on now in the US, as well as those suffering all over the world. While the tornado this week in New London, Connecticut, reported below, was not as bad as Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, the terrible earthquake in Mexico and other global disasters due to CLIMATE CHANGE, the world leaders must take heed.  If not, We The People must take charge of our planet. And yes, we still have to reckon with Hurricane Katia in the Gulf of Mexico, and Hurricane Jose which could hit the East Coast of the US. 

In 2006, a study by NASA, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, and authored by Dr. James Hansen of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (now a Professor at the Earth Institute at Columbia University), and colleagues from Columbia University, Sigma Space Partners, Inc., and the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB), reported that the world’s temperature is reaching a level that has not been seen in thousands of years.  The study concluded that, because of a rapid warming trend over the past 30 years, the Earth is now reaching and passing through the warmest levels in the current interglacial period, which has lasted nearly 12,000 years. This warming is forcing a migration of pathogens, plants and animal species toward the poles.

Listen to a recent interview with Dr. James Hansen.

Listen to Dr. Paul Beckwith, Professor of Climatology at the University of Ontario, talking yesterday about Hurricane Irma.

Climate Change Disrupts all Varieties of Transportation

On Wednesday, 6 September 2017, Target Health took off to attend the DPharm Meeting in Boston. Fortunately, Les Jordan our Chief Software Evangelist, lives in the Boston area.  However, it took Warren Pearlson, BD Director, 8 hours to get to Boston and Jules Mitchel, 6 hours. The tornado in New London, unfortunately, landed on the home of Dave Luke, Sr. Director of Clinical and Scientific Affairs. This same tornado, landed trees onto the train tracks, which caused the lengthy train delays.  A tornado in Connecticut is a rare event.
