Why the mineral museum must be reopened
The Arizona Historical Society cannot understand the value of the mineral museum. They are determined to replace it with an entertainment center. How will a lounge for lobbyists help Arizona?
The members of the AHS should consider some questions about the fututre:
Would they like the lights to come on when they flip the switch?
Would they like to own another new car someday, or would they just as soon learn to ride a horse?
Do they like the internet, or would they prefer to go back to using paper, quill pen, and pony express?
The link below describes a shortage of economic geologists that may eventually jeopardize our economy and lifestyle. Where will future economic geologists come from if K-12 students do not have an opportunity to be exposed to mineral science education programs?
