different from the catastrophists' message
of the world spiraling into desertification,"
he contrasted. "NASA data show vegetation increasing over 50 percent of the
earth. Only 4 percent of the Earth is
seeing desertification. That is a pretty
good trade-off."

He said much of that was attributable
to the rise in soil moisture content, which
is associated with rising temperatures
that allow the atmosphere to hold more
water vapor. CO2 increases plants' fertilization, so plants don't breathe as much,
which is how they lose most of their

water. Therefore, they are not absorbing
as much of it from the ground.
"Those two things combine to increase
soil moisture content and precipitation,"
Wrightstone detailed. "The Sahara Desert
is shrinking. The southern border of the
Sahara is turning into a lush grassland." r

OOGA Adds Twelve To Hall Of Fame
COLUMBUS, OH.-The Ohio Oil and
Gas Association proudly welcomed its
latest distinguished class of legacy members into Ohio Oil and Gas Hall of Fame
during the winter meeting held March 79 at the Hilton Columbus at Easton. The
OOGA Hall of Fame honors those who
have made their own distinct contributions
to the Ohio oil and gas industry. It was
celebrated at the induction ceremony on
the convention's first day, with more than
200 people in attendance.
OOGA notes it has held the induction
ceremony once every four years since
1994. The 2018 hall of fame dinner and
ceremony welcomed 12 new members
into this elite class: Jeffery J.A. Baker,
Joseph W. Haas, Eugene Huck, Jerry
James, William G. Kinney, Mark S. Lytle,
Robert G. McVicker Jr., Jack K. Miller,
Robert Moss, Daniel Pottmeyer, John B.
Walker and Howard J. Wenger.
"To be so recognized by their peers

and colleagues and be inducted in the
Ohio Oil & Gas Hall of Fame is the
zenith for these folks who have dedicated
their lives and reputation to this industry,"
reflected Hall of Famer and former OOGA
Executive Vice President Tom Stewart.
"All the inductees have joined the ranks
of the true independents who have forged
success in this uniquely American industry
and earned the admiration and respect of
all those who surround them."
During his tenure as president, Gene
Brasel established the Hall of Fame in
1987, OOGA notes. Since then, the group
says it has honored 137 oil and gas
industry veterans with induction into the
hall. Brasel thought to honor these veterans
within the industry and shared this vision
with OOGA's Political Action Committee,
which endorsed the idea and took on organizing responsibilities for it. While
honoring those who have given so much
to the industry is the event's paramount

goal, OOGA notes, its secondary purpose
is to raise funds for the Oil and Gas Producers Fund in order to promote and protect what the honorees have worked so
hard for. The honorees are submitted
from throughout the OOGA membership
and voted upon by a select committee,
approved by the Board of Trustees.
"Each inductee reflects the great character of the industry that includes cable
tool drillers, rotary operators, pipeline
companies, oil refiners, utilities, crude
oil buyers, gas marketers, engineers,
lawyers, oil field suppliers, elected officials
and OOGA executives," relates OOGA
President James Aslanides, president of
MFC Drilling Inc. in Coshocton, Oh.
"Reflecting on these families, as well as
other hall of famers, makes me proud to
be a part of the greatest industry association
in our great state and I am privileged to
have witnessed their induction."
