2565. Things heating up
The amount of relevant writing is a tsunami of repetition mixed with lots of good thinking and lots of relevant happenings. For example At Stanford, and from the NYT
At Stanford University, the question is ringing loud. This month, hundreds of students, faculty members and alumni, in an open letter, called on the university’s new climate school to decline funding from fossil fuel companies.
The letter was partly a response to an interview the school’s inaugural dean, Arun Majumdar, gave to my Times colleague David Gelles, in which he said the school was open to donations from oil companies. Majumdar said the school, known as the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability, would be willing to work with companies “that want to diversify and be part of the solution.”
Impossible to keep up. Good to keep looking for relevance and avoid just expressing and passing on attitude.
