13 top universities form climate change coalition

Leading universities across North America have launched the ‘University Climate Change Coalition’ to leverage their research and resources to spur local climate action, reports Climate Action Programme.

The coalition, also known as UC3, was announced by Janet Napolitano, president of the University of California and former Homeland Security secretary under the Obama administration.

With universities from the United States, Canada and Mexico, the new initiative will aim to fill the rising gap in local climate action, especially since the United States government is making deep cuts to numerous science agencies and rolling back environmental regulations aimed at mitigating climate change.
