UCLA is fining itself for using airline travel, which academics allege contributes to climate change (i.e. global warming). The initiative will place these fines into a sustainability fund and the university will re-evaluate the program in 2020.

Each university department pays $25 for each international round-trip that involves airline flights and $9 for domestic round-trip flights.
