Speakers get chosen randomly from a large pool of requesters, so we need more people to request so some of us can at least speak.

Green Corps is looking for college graduates who are ready to take on the biggest environmental challenges of our day.

Their program starts by putting you in an intensive classroom training. You learn about issues and campaigns, organizing theory and principles, and skills from recruiting volunteers to staging a media event. Then, you move to a more hands-on experience. You make a difference on important campaigns to transition our country to clean energy, protect wildlife, and more. For example, Lauren Karpinski, an organizer from the Green Corps Class of 2019, brought together a coalition of 40 groups that helped win a landmark solar energy bill in Arkansas this past year.

Apply now to be considered for their 2021/2022 cohort.

Are you an undergraduate student seeking more involvement with climate action? The Third Thursday CAFE is GND at UCSD’s group made by and for undergrads looking for support in their journey with climate action.

Our last Third Thursday CAFE of the quarter is this Thursday from 8-9pm PST.

We are excited to have guest speaker Dr. Kristina Mendez from UCSD CAPS to discuss our own relationship with nature and how capitalism and colonialism impacts our wellbeing. The holidays can be a stressful time, and in combination with this year’s events, it’s important to evaluate our own feelings and interactions with the climate crisis.

For Zoom information, sign up to GND at UCSD’s mailing list via the link in our bio! We hope to see you there, and we wish you a happy holiday season!

Allies in the University of California, please help.
A super concrete thing you can do - sign up NOW to speak to, or write to, the Regents.
We need the Regents to set goals for the UC to get off fossil fuels; for energy systems and for finance.

"There is something uneasy in the Los Angeles air this afternoon, some unnatural stillness ... What it means is that tonight a Santa Ana will begin to blow, a hot wind from the northeast whining down through the ... San Gorgonia Pass .. drying the hills and the nerves".

Scientists @UofCalifornia strongly suggest early-retirement of gas-burning plants.

"... power sector capital ... will take decades to retire unless its value is sacrificed, and lower-warming scenarios often demand such sacrifice."

To have 66% chance of keeping heating to 1.5 C the world has budget of ~420 bill tonnes (Gt of C02)

But committed & planned Fossil Fuel infrastructure already accounts for 846 Gt of C02.

We must get off gas now OR forget about 1.5 target
