We can’t wait for it to all balance out IN THE END. We need DECARBONIZATION NOW.

“Purchasing offsets means that airlines can continue to emit greenhouse gasses while putting money into programs that halt future emissions. In the end, the net emissions should be zero.”

What should one make of all this talk about offsets??

"the money inside the vaults of banks like Chase is driving the climate crisis. Cutting off that flow of cash may be the single quickest step we can take to rein in the fossil fuel industry and slow the rapid warming of the earth."
Maybe it's time we #chasethemout of our campus! Chase Bank has no place here.

#UC Board of Regents: Next UC president must lower 📉 GHG and create #sustainability model 🔜 #UCSD Let's make sure this is done! #WednesdayWisdom https://t.co/6xsXOMKFzx

Remarkable report with striking graphics from McKinsey. It chartsthe risk of extreme heat in India and other case studies over next 3 decades, from future of food supply in Africa to the economic impact of rising sea levels and devalued houses in Florida https://t.co/0jrJlPFLyb

Carbon Offsets are all the rage for companies trying to look green. Offsets are deeply problematic, and in many cases because doing them displaces serious action they can be worse than nothing. https://t.co/Z7ZN8zjSew

How to decarbonize. Maybe UCSD could take a leaf out of Barcelona's book? https://t.co/xEMyhZuMGj

The new UC President will be positioned to lead the world in decarbonizing a major institution. We need Climate Crisis to be a search criterion. We've passed our goal of 2000 signatures! Can we get 3000 by the 21st? Please share widely: https://t.co/VNKkbzOvE4 https://t.co/h5j9rn6pQc ucsdgreennewde1 photo
