Hey guys happy Sunday! By now you probably know that every Sunday I donate my social media to my @YearsofLiving team to talk about carbon pricing! Huge news! The campaign has reached one of its first major goals! “College and university presidents from over thirty higher education institutions across the country are giving their support to a student-driven effort to endorse carbon pricing for its economy-wide approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change. The Leadership Circle of the higher education carbon pricing initiative includes the presidents of Swarthmore College, Dickinson College, Pitzer College, Wesleyan University, Vassar College and University of California Berkeley. The letter released Monday calls on state and federal lawmakers to proactively work to enact a carbon price at the state and federal level.
‘It’s up to our leaders on the campus, state, and federal level to advocate for solutions that will protect our generation from the true costs of climate change: extreme weather events, wildfires, drought, floods, and global conflict,’ said Carrie Cullen, a junior at Emerson College and Put A Price On It Fellow. ‘It’s encouraging to see our school’s president take a stance on this issue that is so important for our generation’s well-being.’
The Higher Education Carbon Pricing Endorsement Initiative is led by Our Climate, a youth-led organization dedicated to empowering the next generation of climate leaders. Our Climate co-leads the #PutAPriceOnIt campaign with National Geographic documentary series Years of Living Dangerously, and partners with Citizens’ Climate Education to recruit, train, and support student leaders across the country to advocate for carbon pricing.”
