Getting Into Neutral: Climate Policy and the University
On March 11, 2008 the University of Virginia Faculty Senate voted in favor of having the university take steps to make it climate neutral. This paper examines whether such a policy is feasible, and further whether pursuing a policy of climate neutrality is likely the best way to spend university resources, if the goal is to reduce the universityâ€™s carbon footprint. A revised version of this paper was published as Going Green: The inconvenient truth about U.Va.\'s carbon neutrality initiative; Virginia Policy Review (Vol. 2, No. 1) September-October 2008.
