Utne Reader listed Derrick among the 50 visionaries changing the world. In sharp contrast to environmental optimists who believe working within the corporate system will offset the tenuous planetary balance threatened by climate change, for many years Derrick has advocated for “dismantling of civilization” which can include radical dissent as well as imparting wisdom to our children.  Derrick has written many influential books. His recently released “Bright Green Lies: How the Environmental Movement Lost Its Way and What We Can Do About It” is perhaps the most important publication to date the exposes the shortcomings, fallacies, and self deceit among the leading green voices and organizations who dominate the public lectern preaching about climate change and placing faith in technological solutions and new habits of green consumerism.
