Bigger wildfires. Stronger storms. Longer droughts.
For years, UC San Diego has been out front in forecasting the impact of climate change, earning the school international praise.
But the campus also is hearing a blunt, new message: Do more to help fix the problem. Start by slashing the 300,000 tons of carbon dioxide UCSD puts into the air each year. And act quickly.
The message comes from a UCSD faculty task force which is proposing changes that could affect everything from how the school generates energy and the courses it offers to how often faculty can travel and the foods students are offered in campus dining halls.
