Stunning testimony to UC Regents today on how UC San Diego is partnering with SDG&E for “hydrogen solution”

85% of voting faculty in the UC want the campuses to reduce fossil combustion!

University of California faculty voted on the following Memorial to the UC Regents:
“The University of California Academic Senate petitions the Regents for investments in UC’s infrastructure that will reduce on-campus fossil fuel combustion by at least 60% of current levels by 2030 and by 95% of current levels by 2035.”

This is a win for the Fossil Free Energy campaign that started with the UCSD Green New Deal two years ago! see

UC Retirement Will No Longer Hold Companies that Own Fossil Fuel Reserves

The UC has sold $900 million (confirmed Friday June 3rd)!

These are the automatic funds that UC people get their retirements put into. It’s a big thing that UC makes this change, but it doesn’t include companies that service the carbon industry (pipelines) & burn & finance it. We still need a focus on those and we still need transparency for the whole UC portfolio that is fossil-related:

This is a win for the long-standing UC Fossil Fuel Divestment campaign, including the efforts of the UCSD Green New Deal and the UC Green New Deal Coalition!
