Before every Rotary International meeting in Lewistown, Rotarians recite the four-way test, which they consider an ethical guide for the things we think, say or do: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build good will and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
On Monday, this four-way test applied to climate change, as Drs. Robert and Lori Byron of Hardin led a discussion called “Climate Change: Opportunity for Service.”
The Byrons were guests of Rotary member Alana Kuehn, who invited them after Rotary International President Barry Rassin addressed climate change as an issue of importance.
Robert spoke first. An internist who has worked 20-plus years
