The University of California is a pioneer on climate research, renewable energy and environmental sustainability. UC is dedicated to providing scalable solutions to help the world bend the curve on climate change. UC research is also paving the way for the university to meet its goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2025. Read more about our commitment at https://dausel.co/w6liCm

How come UC hasn't figured out how to control wildfires yet? It's been a huge problem in California, before climate change, and there doesn't seem to be any preventive, or mitigating practices, yet. Should they focus on deadly local problems, before working on global issues? What's the carbon footprint, for every acre burned? Wouldn't the wildfires be part of being carbon neutral in California? Can't make your 2025 goal, with out fixing a historical huge problem, that gets worse each year...

There's a difference between wildfires and forest fires. Forest fires are good for the environment and ecosystems. At the same time they are essentially carbon neutral.
This is why a 2 party system like Republicans vs Democrats doesn't work. Common sense has become the enemy.

What's to research? A desert climate is always a desert climate. A marine climate is always a marine climate.

renewable energy

You mean oil, natural gas, wind, and solar energy?

and environmental sustainability.

You just said that.

'Climate change' has a curve? What is the formula for this 'curve'? Define 'climate change'.

So, you are tearing the whole place down by 2025? What are you going to do with the carbon compounds in the walls and bricks? What are you going to do with all the people? Kill them?

I don't bother recording the paradoxes of people that are not here.

Keep your irrational advertisements to yourself, or make the case for your religions yourself.

Carbon neutral? 100,000 acres burn in a week, more or less, releasing a considerable quantity of CO2. It take years for all those acres to recover, and recapture the same CO2. It's not the same areas burning every year...

And it's created jobs in the southeast US. It is official policy in the EU while they say it might actually take a few decades for it to be carbon neutral. This agrees with the IPCC saying we need record levels of CO2 to save the ozone layer. Otherwise why is that not an issue like CO2 emissions are?

Yes, it takes years, maybe a decade. But over some time it is neutral. There are no really old trees currently, and it will burn more often. Preventing trees from burning in California is what created the problem.

CO2 has no effect on O3 or the ozone layer.
