How to help combat global warming, campus by campus.
Since January 2007, there have been 117 weather-related disasters resulting in 2,400 lives lost and costing the United States $750 billion, according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Compounding matters, in its 2017 compendium of studies examining the role of climate change in global weather, the American Meteorological Society found — for the first time — extreme events that would not have happened without increased greenhouse gases caused by humans. The last three years have been the hottest on record, resulting in extreme weather and climate-related events that cost a devastating $320 billion in 2017 alone.
