UCLA students raise the climate sign to unite their campus for carbon neutrality! As all of the University of California campuses compete to lower their campus carbon footprints in the Cool Campus Challenge, UCLA has risen ahead of eight other campuses. Carbon Neutrality Fellow, Austin Park, says that the climate sign has, “…proven to be an awesome way to generate interest.” Using climate sign photo booths and stickers, he and other student leaders have encouraged their peers to unite for climate action and take steps to reduce their carbon footprints. The climate sign means “d” in American Sign Language, which stands for “decarbonize.” Students across UCLA have spread the message that together, their campus can completely decarbonize by year 2025.

The U'wa people of the Amazon assert that there has been a "profound shift in the interconnectedness of our ecosystem necessary for sustaining life on earth." Amazon Watch has partnered with indigenous peoples of the Ecuadorian Amazon to call on world leaders during COP21 to keep Amazonian oil in the ground. What will the rest of us do to support the actions of indigenous people for the benefit of all of humanity? #Amazon #climatesign #COP21 #worktogether http://amazonwatch.org/news/2015/0929-keep-it-in-the-ground

System Change Not Climate Change; the Ecosocialist Coalition believes that "through the establishment of popular community energy committees at the local, regional and national levels, we can democratically and collectively decide on questions concerning our energy production, distribution, and consumption." With locally established energy systems, we will not longer be beholden to the profit-driven interests of the gas/oil companies. #systemchangenotclimatechange #climatesign #climateaction
