2. CONTINENTAL DRIFT / PLATE TECTONICS
3. EVOLUTION OF THE SPECIES
Mr. Wright is a botanist/ecologist/geologist, paleobotanist who worked for the U.S. Forest Service. He has also worked for the University of California as a botanist/agronomist. He has been performing as a consultant for various government agencies. When asked about his degrees he sort of chuckled and said he had some but that they were not that important in the whole story, so we will just consider that he has quite a few. Mr. Wright is a busy speaker, and would appreciate as much notice as possible, he was already booked for several three months away when we spoke to him.
