The MIT Alumni for Climate Action (aka MACA) is a non-partisan group of Massachusetts Institute of Technology alumni concerned about the devastating effects of climate
change. We support action at all levels to communicate the urgency of
the problem and reduce the risk and damage from climate change. We
support science-based interventions in the energy, transportation, industry, and agriculture systems such as the rapid development of renewable wind and solar
energy capabilities and elimination of fossil fuel usage to drastically
reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions.
MACA is a growing group of climate activists consisting of members from many states and nations. The group's mission, history, and organization are summarized below and in our Mission and Action Plan. Our recent group actions can be found on our Activities page and our Roadmap for Responding to Climate Change can be found on our Roadmap page.Check them out to learn more about our current work!
In 2021, MACA is partnering with other climate groups to secure climate leadership in Washington DC through the @ConfirmClimate campaign. We have partnered with @NRDC to support Secretary of Energy nominee Gov. Granholm, the@EnvDefenseFund to support Environmental Protection Agency Administrator nominee Michael Regan and the Council on Environmental Quality Chair nominee Brenda Mallory, and @OceanConservancy to support Secretary of Commerce nominee Gov. Raimondo.
MACA is also partnering with @ClimateReality to demand urgent action on the fifth anniversary of the signing of the Paris Agreement by sending letters to reps and with @ClimateLit as a signatory for the National Strategic Planning Framework to support
the creation of a national U.S. Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE).
Background information on climate change and its
effects on the state, nation, and world, are available from our Educational Resources page and Web Portal. For a recent report on climate change, see the US Global Change Research Program Climate Science Special Report (CSSR). Click on the images below.
