Retired Dr. James E. T. Channel, U.F. Department of Geological Sciences and UF/IFAS Levy County Extension Agent Anthony Drew gave a  climate change presentation to 47 people Sept. 22 at the Levy Levy County Agricultural Extension Service office in Bronson.

Channel presented the facts of climate change that are supported by documented geological evidence. The potential impact on agriculture and horticulture, in general, was discussed.

Levy County Extension Agent Anthony Drew asked the audience how many have planted dogwood trees recently and how were those trees doing?

The overwhelming response seemed to be that the trees are not doing well.

According to Drew, the warmer temperatures in the atmosphere are to blame. It seems the trees are falling victim to global warming.

Drew gave examples of what he called “anomalies” being witnessed in the plant kingdom. He then went on to introduce Dr. James E. Channell, his friend of several years.

They met at a dinner party, and while the wives discussed tile colors the men started talking about their careers.
