November 25 – Dick Smythe

Dick Smythe


Last Sunday we had a preliminary look at the issue of climate change. This Sunday we will briefly examine some projected effects of global climate change some of which we, in Wisconsin, may not be aware of at all.  If we are aware do we understand that we or our grandchildren might be directly affected?

Dick Smythe is an entomologist retired from the research division of the US Forest Service. Before kindergarten he started collecting feathers and insects. In college he majored in biology, and then earned a PhD in entomology. Throughout his lifetime, Dick has maintained an interest in the natural world. He is active in a number of environmental organizations, is an avid reader, especially in the biological sciences and theology, and enjoys being out-of-doors throughout the year.
