Meeting Monday, June 19

 

President John welcomed our guest speaker Joanne Nova speaking on ‘Climate Alarmism’

He also welcomed Vic Lewkowski, Judy Marsh, Andrew Pittaway, Elaine Bennett, Vanessa Bennett,

Anne Ramshaw, Robyn Kluver, Julian Mettam, Alison Holt, Austin Coulthard and Scott Stolnitz

 

Guest Speaker:  Joanne Nova

‘Climate Alarmism’ A sea of half truths

 

George was pleased to introduce our guest speaker.

Joanne Nova is an Australian science writer, blogger, speaker and author of “The Skeptic's Handbook”.

Born Joanne Codling, she adopted the stage name "Nova" in 1998 when she was preparing to host a children's television program.

Joanne finished her Bachelor of Science degree with first class honours, A+ grades and both the FH Faulding, and The Swan Brewery Prizes, at the University of Western Australia.  She majored in Microbiology, Molecular Biology and doing honours research into DNA markers for use in Muscular Dystrophy trials.  She also has a Graduate Certificate in Science Communication from the ANU, and worked for three years as an Associate Lecturer for the Graduate Diploma in Science Communication program at the Australian National University.

 

Joanne warned us to be sceptical of what you hear in the media.

She challenged our thinking on a number of issues. 

As an example, she talked about temperatures being recorded, in various places around the world, by thermometers being positioned in places that do not give off true or consistent readings.

Her talk certainly challenged our thinking and was followed by a range of questions and comments.

 

Jo Nova and George Lewkowski

 

 

Happy Birthday Betty

Alison Holt, Austin Coulthard, Anne Lewkowski, Julian Mettamn and Robyn Kluver

George won the Door Prize and very kindly donated it to Jo Nova.

Nurse Shannon Muir

 

Anaesthetist, Dr Andrew Miller, who is also President of the WA Branch of the Australian Medical Association, and Nurse Shannon Muir, were part of an Interplast team that had recently returned from a surgical trip to Laos.

They spoke about their experiences in Laos and were highly entertaining and very informative.

 

The Interplast medical team conducted free consultation clinics for patients who have congenital or acquired deformities including burn injuries at the Mahosot General Hospital.  The surgeries are performed free of charge.

 

Interplast’s long-term objectives are to improve the quality of lives of people living with disabilities as a result of congenital or acquired medical conditions who would otherwise not receive treatment.  While the volunteers work, they also train and mentor local professionals, laying the foundations for a stronger health system.

 

Interplast sends teams of volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals to provide life-changing surgery and medical training in 17 countries across the Asia Pacific region.

Colin and Gail went to an evening to hear about the work done by Interplast surgical teams and what they achieve with the support of Rotary donors.

The children and adult patients featured in the talk all had their live dramatically improved by the surgery and after care services.

Dear Rotary Club,

 

We are writing to you in hope that you may be able to assist us.

 

In 2016 St Vincent de Paul delivered over 42, 000 items of emergency relief to families in need and unfortunately, we will see that figure grow this year.

 

With the influx of families requiring assistance, we now find ourselves reaching out to the community for help. We are currently running desperately short of single, double and queen size blankets for our bedding packs. With the cold winter nights, not fully upon us yet, we run the risk of not being able to supply these basic necessities when these families need us the most.

 

We are hoping that your club may be able to assist us with a donation of blankets. If you have any spare blankets in your cupboards at home that you do not need, we would gladly organise to come out to your home and collect these items or any other items you may like to donate.

 

Can we please ask that you share this request with your members and hopefully together we can help keep a family in need warm this winter.

 

 

 

Kind regards,

 

Fiona McGougan
