Proposed amendments to AEG's constitution/bylaws
AEG
The following is a list of the new proposed amendments to AEG's constitution and bylaws. Through the external "needs assessment" that AEG underwent, it was identified that AEG's current governance structure is likely limiting association growth and precluding our "at-large" members from participating in local functions. It also was identified that by reducing the size of our Board of Directors, it could operate with more efficiency and effectiveness.

Ancient ocean currents may have changed pace and intensity of ice ages
Geology Times
Climate scientists have long tried to explain why ice-age cycles became longer and more intense some 900,000 years ago, switching from 41,000-year cycles to 100,000-year cycles. In a paper published in the journal Science, researchers report that the deep ocean currents that move heat around the globe stalled or may have stopped at that time, possibly due to expanding ice cover in the Northern Hemisphere.
