The WildEarth Climate Action Team of Wildflower Church is proud to host Austinite DERRICK CROWE’s talk, “The State of The Climate.” This scientifically grounded yet clear and engaging presentation describes today’s climate change challenge and the way forward. Areas covered will include understanding climate change, rebuttal of climate-denier arguments, global climate justice, and what response is required by Earth’s life-support systems. There will be time for Q & A.
The birth of Derrick’s son Henry three years ago, coinciding with each of those years breaking all previous global temperature records, led Derrick to prioritize fighting climate change and communicating about it.
Derrick Crowe has worked as a senior staffer on Capitol Hill on agriculture and rural issues, strategic communications policy, and counter-terrorism. Concern about the latter led him to leave Washington and eventually lead the Rethink Afghanistan project at Brave New Foundation. Since arriving in Austin, he has co-founded a small business and has done much work in non-profit sector in Austin, including working for SAFE to provide justice to survivors of sexual assault, and at the Center for Public Policy Priorities, advocating for low- and moderate-income Texans. WCAT team members know Derrick for his work with 350.org, a local and national organization dedicated to preventing dangerous or catastrophic climate change, and for his presentation during Climate Justice Week last spring in the lead-up to the People’s Climate March.
Wildflower Church is located just west of I-35, on the north side of Oltorf across from Travis High School, and shares its campus with Faith Presbyterian Church. Presentation is in Wildflower’s Community Room; look for signs.
