UC San Diego joins leading climate research universities to issue Declaration leading into G20 Summit

UC San Diego has joined an international coalition of leading climate research universities that will issue its first declaration ahead of the G20 Summit on 21 and 22 November 2020.

The Climate Alliance is unprecedented in scale and scope and will support world leaders, policy makers and industry in planning for, and responding to, climate change. The Alliance will provide a central hub for universities to share the latest climate research and enable greater collaboration between leading research teams.

The Declaration implores world leaders to use the post-COVID recovery to implement measures to counteract climate change, warning that failure to do so will lock in catastrophic consequences for generations to come.

“UC San Diego has been shaped by exceptional scholars who challenge expectations in order to make our world better, including pioneers of climate change research like Roger Revelle and geochemist Charles David Keeling of the ‘Keeling Curve,’” said UC San Diego Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla. “Our participation in the Climate Alliance is an extension of our mission to collaborate with leading scientists on real world solutions.”
