Environmental group demands Columbia U. declare a ‘climate emergency’

The Columbia University chapter of a group dubbed the Sunrise Movement has called on the university president to declare a “climate emergency” by December 1.

The Columbia Spectator says the organization “aims to stop climate change” (can the climate stop from being changed?) and wants President Lee Bollinger to sign off on the UN Environment’s Global Climate Emergency letter.

The Sunrise Movement petition (which actually states a deadline of November 1) notes that “nearly 200 colleges and universities around the world have signed the UN Environment’s Global Climate Emergency letter, declaring that the Climate Crisis is an existential threat worthy of urgent action.”

It points out that schools in “France, Cameroon, China, Honduras, Nigeria, [and] Colombia” are participating.


Sunrise’s Elizabeth Love says her group wants Columbia to implement “education on climate and sustainability throughout campus, research climate in an action-oriented way, and become carbon neutral by 2050.”
