In this semester-long project, students analyze campus links to greenhouse gas emissions to try and understand local links to the global issue of greenhouse gas emissions. They can work independently or in groups to inventory greenhouse gas emissions on their campus. The data could be used to make a plan for a climate neutral campus through alternatives to or more efficient use of electricity consumption, ... Full description.
