MIT Climate Action Plan assessment

MIT Alumni for Climate Action
MIT produced a 5-year action plan on climate change in October 2015 ("A Plan for Action on Climate"). The stated objective of the plan was “to minimize emission of carbon dioxide, methane and other global warming agents into the atmosphere, and to devise pathways for adaptation to climate change, through the active involvement of the MIT community, proactively engaged with industry, government, academia, foundations, philanthropists and the public.” The plan stated that divestment from fossil fuel companies is not the most effective way for MIT to drive progress on the climate challenge. According to the plan, progress will depend on MIT’s collaboration with industry partners, from solar start-ups to fossil fuel giants. A group of MIT alumni is working on an analysis of MIT’s achievements in the past 5 years and recommendations for the future.
