“While college and university campuses across the country are, in aggregate, responsible for only about 3 percent of the total greenhouse gas emissions emitted in the U.S., we are educating 100 percent of our future political, business and social leaders,” said ASU President Michael Crow. “This fact alone places significant accountability on higher education and its leaders to take action.”

UC3 (University Climate Change Coalition) includes universities from the United States, Canada and Mexico. The universities have committed to “mobilizing their resources and expertise to help businesses, cities and states achieve their climate goals.” The formation of UC3 was announced on February 6, at the Second Nature 2018 Higher Education Climate Leadership Summit, held in Tempe.

Original members of UC3 are: Arizona State University; California Institute of Technology; Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey; La Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México; The Ohio State University; The State University of New York (SUNY) system; The University of British Columbia; The University of California system; University of Colorado, Boulder; University of Maryland, College Park; The University of New Mexico; The University of Toronto; and The University of Washington.

According to the coalition’s press release, UC3’s goals include:

Cross-sector forums: Every UC3 institution will convene a climate change forum in 2018 to bring together community and business leaders, elected officials and advocates. Forums will be tailored to meet local and regional objectives focusing on research-driven policies and solutions to assist various communities.

Coalition climate mitigation and adaptation report: A coalition-wide report, to be released in late 2018, will synthesize the best practices, policies and recommendations from all UC3 forums into a framework for continued progress on climate change goals across the nation and the world.

All UC3 members have already pledged to reduce their institutional carbon footprints, with commitments ranging from making more climate-friendly investments to becoming operationally carbon neutral in line with the Paris Climate Agreement and the Under2MOU for subnational climate leaders.

  1. in short we’ll tell you what to do, when to do it.. and how much it will cost you, as well as to where to send the check – mission accomplished

  2. Institutionalized indoctrination and brainwashing by the government. The public education system is totally corrupt. Parents are fools for subjecting their children to it. The Democrat party should be re-branded as the Communist party.

  3. I am looking at all the headlines in today’s ADI and I see the Progressive,Communist, cause’s are being exposed? I read the first two and don’t want to read anymore idiocy.

  4. A “coalition”? Why do Leftists always need “coalitions”?

    Whatever…these people are really interested in tackling the United States and reducing it to a third world nation.

    Otherwise, they might as well form a “coalition” to tackle Alpha Centauri.

  5. Well California’s university system delivered in the presidential election where it didn’t matter if you voted or not Hillary’s was the winner.
    The largest University System in the US run by a non-academic but a politician. There goes the quality of higher education but indoctrination no open exchange of idea but rational to destroy called By any means necessary and endorsed by Janet Napolitano in actions

  6. Do these people think they can stop climate change that has been going on for about 4 billion years?

  7. All this concern over “carbon footprints” is futile. Real evidence shows that our CO2 emissions have little to no effect on “greenhouse” gas warming. See: https://arizonadailyindependent.com/2015/01/31/evidence-that-co2-emissions-do-not-intensify-the-greenhouse-effect/

  8. COW Says, eat more chicken

  9. My father, a respectable man, worked with “Janet-from-another-planet” Napolitano when she was younger at a law firm in Phoenix. He was a kind man who avoided talking trash about others. When she was elected governor he told me she was the “most worthless person” he had ever met. Apparently that still holds true today. I hope she reads this.
