Middlebury College Receives Climate Champion Award

ClimateChampion.jpgAt Vermont’s Middlebury College, there are courses and projects that address solutions to global warming. There are annual campus greenhouse gas emissions inventories, and there’s a working group appointed to reducing said emissions. Rather than stop at its own campus, the college collaborates with organizations in the region (including other businesses, communities, and other colleges) to “develop cost-effective solutions to fight climate change and promote environmental protection.”
If this sounds impressive, you’re not the only one who thinks so; Clean Air — Cool Climate, a non-profit dedicated to finding and implementing solutions to global warming in the Northeast US, just recognized Middlebury’s efforts with the 2005 Climate Champion Award.
