Kathleen Dean Moore spoke on the “Moral Urgency of Climate Action” at the Davis Veterans Memorial Theater on March 6. After establishing the importance of taking action on climate change, she challenged the audience to ask:
1) What gifts have I been given?
2) What do I love too much to lose?
3) How can that love empower me to use my gifts to stop anyone from damaging those things I love, using the three c’s:
Creative disruption, and
Courageous, relentless citizenship.
Kathleen Dean Moore opened the Third Annual Interfaith Climate Conference on March 7th with her talk on “Moral Ground: Ethical Action for a Planet in Peril.” She described the path we are on and urged us to write a new story, a love story in which we are the protagonists because we know what we love too much to lose, and we will find ways to ways to protect what we love. She talked about our love for our children and our the diversity of life. To learn more about the love story we are writing, tune in here.
