Dozens of universities are declaring a climate emergency
The U.K. Parliament declared a climate emergency at the beginning of May. Two weeks later, so did the cities of Dublin and Geneva. Sydney followed in June; hundreds of other cities have made the same declaration. At the beginning of July, Los Angeles set up a Climate Emergency Mobilization Office. Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez want the federal government to declare a climate emergency. Now, universities are doing the same.
