MIT Alumni for Climate Action
MACA Website Home Page
The MIT Alumni for Climate Action (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 and
food systems such as the rapid development of renewable wind and solar
energy capability and elimination of fossil fuel usage to drastically
reduce carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions.
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessments have detailed the far-reaching and unprecedented responses required. The international community of nations responded with the Paris Agreement in 2015. Limiting carbon emissions immediately, through reduction in our carbon footprint, will lead to lessening
global warming, and ensure a more sustainable world with clear benefits to people and natural ecosystems. The longer we wait to take to act, the more difficult the problems will be to address in future. Our immediate goal must be to start reducing carbon emissions by developing pathways to 50 % reduction by 2030 followed by their elimination within a generation. See our Web Portal for more information, including our initiative in Maryland. For more information on recent climate action at MIT, see our Inside MIT page.
The MIT Alumni for Climate Action group is a member of the MIT Alumni Energy, Environment, and Sustainability Network (EESN) and MIT Climate community. Sign up to join the MACA Team and follow the group on Twitter and MIT Climate.
