Rally for a renewable university

Thursday, February 14, 2019 by Tai Moses

UT students, faculty and staff will hold a rally today at 1 p.m. at the corner of Robert Dedman Drive and Red River Street to urge the university to transition to 100 percent renewable energy by 2050. UT campus activists plan to conduct a press conference where they will release a letter signed by nearly 1,000 faculty and staff members from campuses around the country supporting the shift to 100 percent renewables and urging the nation’s institutions of higher learning to lead the way. Dozens of UT faculty and staff have signed the letter. A recent United Nations report suggests we have just 12 years to modify our energy infrastructure in an effort to limit catastrophic global warming.
