Alumni: Tell Chancellor McRaven to cut climate-damaging pollution on University of Texas Land
The University of Texas is involved in one of the largest fracking operations in the US, and it’s a major source of pollution. Over the last six years, oil and gas operations on UT lands alone released over 11.7 million tons of climate pollution. That’s as much as 2.5 million cars!
As a University of Texas alum, you know that UT prides itself on leading the way towards the clean, sustainable energy future we need. But when it comes to controlling climate pollution leaking from fracking operations on its land, UT’s approach is stuck in the past.
Simple and affordable modifications to oilfield operations can cut methane emissions dramatically. But companies that drill on UT land aren’t required to make them.
Over three thousand students and dozens of faculty members have signed petitions and letters urging Chancellor McRaven to take action. Now, it’s time for the alumni to speak up as well.
Send a letter to Chancellor McRaven and let him know that you want University of Texas take action to ensure a brighter future for all Texans.
