Don Corrigan’s “Show Me… Nature’s Wrath” presentations are especially useful for Boy Scouts seeking their Weather Merit Badges. He has tailored his talks, upon request, especially for the requirements of Weather Merit Badges. Even his general presentations on wild Missouri weather cover areas that Scouts should know.
Among the Weather Merit Badge topics covered:
• Scouts must be able to identify five dangerous weather-related conditions. “Nature’s Wrath” covers hail, lightning, tornadoes, ice storms, blizzards, flash floods, heat waves and more…
• Scouts need to know the difference between weather and climate, between the work of a meteorologist and a climatologist. Don has it covered.
• What’s a high pressure system and a low pressure system? In his presentation, Don shows satellite photos of weather fronts and low pressure systems that wreaked havoc on Missouri.
• What is acid rain, ozone depletion and CO2 pollution? Do they interact with the weather? These topics can be covered in wrath presentations.
• For the merit badge, Scouts are required to give 5-minute talks on the weather. Don can show them how it is done with his presentations on “Show Me…Nature’s Wrath.”
