In May 2014, the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) orchestrated the University of Illinois’ sale of about 150,000 metric tons of certified carbon credits from its Urbana-Champaign campus to Chevrolet. The sale, the largest to date in the Chevrolet Clean Energy Campus Campaign, was brought about in large part because the campus was able to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by reducing coal use in favor of gas for energy generation.

Guest post by Wim Wiewel, president of Portland State University.

Widespread drought, disappearing habitat, catastrophic sea level change — we’ve all heard the forecasts.

Blog

I wanted a Volt for years, but it never seemed practical.

I HAD a car, an aging white sedan inherited from my parents, and there was nothing wrong with it.

Do I want the fancy wheels? Heck yes I want the fancy wheels. I even test drove one once and was blown away by how fun it was to drive–it was so quick and responsive that in the city it felt kind of like a sports car.

These furry friends provide necessary protection to our ecosystem.
