Dude, Where’s My Carbon?
American University’s goal to become carbon neutral by 2020 is an ambitious one. Is it possible to achieve? Part of AU’s commitment to carbon neutrality involves their participation in a carbon offsetting project in Costa Rica in order to mitigate emissions due to study abroad travel and commuting to campus. A group of graduate students traveled to Costa Rica in order to assess and recommend to AU whether or not to continue participating in the project.
