We're in for a #JustRecovery - are you? Is UC San Diego? They've just sold their fossil fuel investments and we're keeping watch to make sure they don't buy them back!

Oil prices went negative in late April for the first time in history! Watch and learn more about what this means for the climate. The fossil fuel industry is failing. It’s time to end fossil fuel finance for good, and build a #JustRecovery in the wake of coronavirus.

WRITE: Opportunity for you to get your climate-related experiences and thinking out there!
A new website has been launched which publishes UCSD students' writing on "all things climate related". It would be so great to get a bunch of pieces up on there from our supporters. This is a great opportunity to get our views and experiences out there to be part of the wider UCSD conversations.

WINNING BUT WANTING MORE. Is the University of California really going “fossil free”?
While it is an incredible win for the movement that the University of California announced it has sold its investments in the fossil fuel industry, they have not committed to fossil fuel divestment.

Check out the op-ed some of our members wrote. The crux, they say, is a quote by the Chief Financial Officer of UC: “We don’t look at oil and gas as a goal that has to be accomplished by a certain amount, to reduce a certain amount of investment. We look at it as financial risk or a financial opportunity.”

TAKE ACTION: Sign our petition calling on the Mayor and City Council of San Diego to get a better deal for our clean energy future! https://sandiego350.org/drupal/energy-franchise-agreement ✊🖊🌎👭👬
Our fellow activists at SD350 are running a petition to get a better, more ethical deal for us. San Diegans pay among the very highest utility rates in the country and much of our energy still comes from fossil fuels. SDG&E has repeatedly fought the city and undermined efforts to get to 100% renewable energy. They have opposed community choice energy and worked to charge ratepayers for their own negligence in causing devastating fires. SDG&E has rigged the system through lobbying and campaign contributions to pad their bottom line.
It’s time for a better deal.
Please take a couple minutes to read and sign (and another minute to share)!

ZNET publishes article by two of our members "Climate Action by the University of California is more Spin than Substance" https://t.co/661tMKcGa9 https://t.co/asF6r79Spb ucsdgreennewde1 photo

Quite amusing to see the Economist magazine, which has championed unbridled capitalism for over 170 years, declaring that "COVID-19 has shown that our prosperity is precarious" [no shit!] and urging leaders to "show bravery in heading off the [climate crisis] disaster". https://t.co/vdmfz7yMp0 ucsdgreennewde1 photo

Meanwhile, a postdoc at UCSD:
"A devastating cyclone just hit the Indian state I’m from. My mom said she hasn’t seen a storm like this since she was a kid. Winds at 100 mph accompanied by torrential rain. The power out. House flooded. 2020 gets worse"

Is @UofCalifornia really going "fossil free"?
Not so fast.
