Climate change is happening, imperiling the hopes and dreams of students today. Our Climate, in partnership with the National Geographic documentary series, Years of Living Dangerously, calls on leaders in higher education to demonstrate support for a policy that has the power to reduce pollution and avert catastrophic global warming: a price on carbon. Putting a price on carbon creates a powerful incentive for individuals, communities, investors, and businesses to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition to a clean energy economy.
College and university presidents can endorse carbon pricing by signing onto the letter below via this form. The letter will be shared with state and local lawmakers, the higher education community, and the public to garner support for this critical policy. Talking points about this effort are HERE, and visit our FAQ page HERE. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
