Clarkson and more than 70 other colleges and universities in the U.S. are calling on the Biden-Harris administration to adopt a target of at least 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030.

A letter signed by the higher education institutions state in part: "We know that we need to address the climate crisis at the pace and scale it demands. Climate science, much of which is generated at our institutions, tells us that the United States must adopt an emissions reduction target that will place the country on a credible pathway to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. We, therefore, call on the administration to adopt the ambitious and attainable target of cutting our nation's greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% below 2005 levels by 2030."
