"The day after the election, I had a meeting with Valerie Smith, the president of Swarthmore College, to discuss endorsing a national price on carbon. When I walked into her office, she greeted me with a supportive hug, an embrace that I feel symbolizes not only the solidarity we shared in that moment, but also acknowledgement of the fact that the fight against climate change just became a lot more challenging. However, I was successful in persuading her to become the second university president nationally to support a price on carbon. This experience, as well as the #PutAPriceOnIt campaign and the movement it has spurred nationwide, has truly given me hope and optimism. Want to get your president to endorse?
