Writing Program Intern Joins Cool Davis
Cool Davis welcomes Annie Merritt! Annie is an environmental outreach writing intern at Cool Davis, as an undergraduate at UC Davis majoring in Environmental Science and Management with a focus on Natural Resource Management and minoring in Professional Writing.
Annie interned at the Center for Spatial Technologies and Remote Sensing (CSTARS) at UC Davis previously, where she was involved in a research project assessing the effectiveness of current prescribed burning and thinning methods in increasing forest resistance to drought.
In the summers of 2015 and 2016, Annie participated in fieldwork for research projects studying drought impacts on Sierra Nevada forests, experiences that inspired her interest in forest ecology, drought, and the broader impacts of climate change.
In her free time, Annie enjoys running, reading, playing pick-up soccer, and hiking and camping.
Annie will be working on the Climate Impacts and Environmental Scorecard content currently being developed for our website. Check out Annie’s first article!
Message for 350 national:
In just one week, millions of us will be hitting the streets around the world to demand an end to the age of fossil fuels.
But we need your help now.
Watch these short video messages of climate strikers talking about why they will be “out of the office/school/home/etc” on September 20th - and share. Or record your own message to share on social media.
We’re out of office. Are you with us?
We are out of patience, out of time, and out of options. We need everyone everywhere - workers, teachers, parents, neighbors - to spread the word and join the youth leading this fight in the streets for climate justice. And you can help.
Get the word out and inspire others to get “out of office” on September 20th. Take two minutes to record your own custom message to your online community, sharing your reasons for joining the Global Climate Strike.
And don’t forget to add the hashtags if you create your own message - use #climatestrike #strikewithus and #outoftheoffice so we can see everything being shared and amplify. And don’t forget to link to globalclimatestrike.net so you spread the word about Global Climate Strikes kicking off in a week, on September 20th.
Ready, set, go! Tell everyone you’ll be out of the office, school, home or wherever you are with our downloadable videos (if you don’t want to record your own, just share one of ours) – and ask others to join you.
Thanks for sharing,
P.S. Haven’t RSVPed for a Climate Strike near you? There are almost 700 actions happening around the country on September 20th so sign up to join one today. ... See MoreSee Less
