UC Irvine is a university that prides itself on its progressive stance on global climate change, and has proven a fertile ground for world-renowned atmospheric and earth systems research. Much of the Nobel Prize winning work of Dr. Frank Rowland was conducted on this campus, and there are dozens of laboratories on campus that produce high-caliber research on the effects of global climate change. In fact, our graduate program of atmospheric chemistry is currently ranked number one in the nation, right in front of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Former UCI Chancellor Ralph Cicerone left his position here to become president of the National Academy of Sciences, in order to be more influential in the fight against global warming.
One would expect such a university to do everything in its power to encourage positive changes in the fight against global warming
