George Washington to Go Carbon-Neutral. The School, not the President.

So this is where my tuition money was going:

At George Washington University. . . “The Office of Sustainability and Climate Action Plan implementation teams are on schedule to complete the promised road map to make GW carbon neutral by its deadline of May 15, a University administrator said this week,” Michelle Brown reported in the GW Hatchet online on April 8, 2010. “Sophie Waskow, the stakeholder engagement coordinator of the Office of Sustainability, said the plan will be unveiled April 22 at an Earth Day celebration.”

“The Climate Action Plan implementation teams have made significant progress analyzing different strategies for reducing carbon emissions resulting from the University’s energy and transportation activities,” Waskow stated in an e-mail.

While the climate change consensus crumbles all around them, the carbon-neutral-stakeholder-engagement coordinators and sustainability-and-climate-action-road-map-implementation teams of the American academy march ever forward.
