AASHE Releases Annual Campus Sustainability Review

AASHE has released its "2010 Campus Sustainability Review."

Second Nature Climate Change Briefing Paper

Second Nature has published No. 3 in its Briefing Paper Series, "The Ultimate Stakes: Climate Change and the Fate of Civilization." We are living in a "truly extraordinary time in the Earth's volatile history," says author and environmental journalist Dianne Dumanoski in the report. "The world as we know it - with agriculture, civilization, and dense human numbers - has only been possible because of a rare interlude of climatic grace. A long summer." Detailing what the climate changes ahead may mean to human societies in areas including agriculture and public health, Dumanoski writes, "If the world's economy continues on its current trajectory of exponential growth driven by fossil fuels, today's college students will live in a perilous time...they will almost certainly witness a dramatic and dangerous jump in global temperatures in their lifetime; see the demise of coral reefs and other marine life as excess carbon dioxide makes the world's oceans increasingly acidic; endure severe climate disruption; and possibly even confront outright catastrophe from abrupt shifts in the Earth's climate system."

Inside Higher Ed 'Academic Minute': Geothermal Power

The University of Massachusetts at Amherst's J. Michael Rhodes discusses the techniques and benefits of geothermal power in this Inside Higher Ed "Academic Minute." In contrast to wind or solar energy, says Rhodes, "it's available 24 hours a day, seven days a week" and "is not obtrusive nor does it take up large amounts of space." While "prevailing wisdom writes off New England as a source of geothermal energy," says Rhodes, the region is "blessed with granite; compared with other rocks, granites contain large amounts of potassium, uranium and thorium, all of which produce heat through radioactive decay. This makes the granite hotter at depth than the surrounding rocks and a possible source of geothermal energy."

Inside Higher Ed 'Academic Minute': Green Energy Storage

This Inside Higher Ed Academic Minute features Raymond Orbach, director of the University of Texas at Austin's Energy Institute. In an attempt to meet President Barack Obama's goal of producing 80 percent of our country's electricity from clean energy sources within 25 years, researchers at the university are focused on creating a means to efficiently store green energy for on-demand use. The problem with clean energy sources, says Orbach, is that "when you turn on your light switch, you expect your lights to come on and that could be in the middle of the day when the wind isn't blowing." The university is developing a "flow battery," which converts electrical energy into chemical energy that can be pumped it into a tank. When the energy is needed, it can be reconverted into electrical energy.
