We are fighting for fossil freedom

Humans cannot burn all the fossil fuel reserves that energy companies are planning to while still staying below the critical 1.5°C above pre-industrial mean temperatures. The simplicity of this fact belies the complexity that must be engaged to reorient economies and societies globally to make real reductions in emissions. Fossil Free UW is challenging the Univerity of Waterloo community to act in their spaces and their own ways to make this happen and protect our common future.
