TX - Creative coastal resiliency solutions stressed at environmental conference
Wendy Gordon did not shy away from one of the most politicized words in modern politics on Wednesday afternoon at the University of Houston — Victoria North building, where she kicked off a conversation about coastal resiliency.
Climate change is not a dirty word nor a term for what the globe will experience down the road, but rather what is already happening, she said.
“I will disagree with the idea that climate change is something that is in the future, kinda hard to see and hard to wrap our hands around because in fact it is happening now,” she said.
Gordon is the founder and director of Climate Action Texas, a nonprofit she recently started after recognizing the need for an organization dedicated to looking at the science and policy of climate change in Texas.
