Colleges and universities, important leaders in the effort to stop global warming, themselves face challenges in managing their global warming pollution -- and one of these can be in getting an accurate sense of what their emissions are and where they are coming from in the first place. Developing a comprehensive greenhouse gas "inventory" requires time and know-how -- quite often, this first step becomes a stumbling block to effective campus leadership.
You can help campuses take the first step toward effective global warming leadership by providing them with Clean Air-Cool Planet's Campus Carbon Calculator. This software helps campuses document and analyze the sources of their global warming pollution, and observe trends over time. The Calculator, road-tested by more than 200 colleges and universities across North America, provides a framework for data collection and analysis that makes the inventory process straightforward enough for students to complete -- making it an educational tool as well as a management tool for the campus! Your gift will help Clean Air-Cool Planet continue to develop and distribute this important software tool to campuses who want to take the lead in solving global warming.
