Cutting Emissions and the Old School TryHeather Green
The NYTimes wrote yesterday about Harvard’s agreement to comply with a suggestion by Massachusetts authorities that it slash greenhouse gas emissions at a proposed four-building science center.
It’s not a coincindence, I think that the agreement comes amid a growing student movement across the U.S. to push colleges to cut emissions, become more energy efficient, buy green energy and locally grown food. I wrote about this movement in a story for BusinessWeek last year. Colleges are businesses, afterall, and they are reacting in part to the higher awareness among the Millennial generation of the issues they’re inheriting.
