Sierra says: Reed is (not) one of the greenest colleges

The September/October 2012 issue of Sierra magazine lists the 96 greenest colleges and universities in the United States. Top contenders included several Oregon institutions: U. of Oregon (#13), Lewis & Clark College (#22), Portland State (#28), and Southern Oregon U (#45). See the related article, Building the Future, for more information about the survey.

Other Sierra articles of interest: the two-sides of polar fleece garments (a fleece coat keeps polyester plastic out of a landfill, but may dump it somewhere worse), the World’s Coal Stack presents coal burning around the globe in an easy-to-understand chart, and An Inconvenient Subject asks whether classroom teachers are avoiding discussions of climate change because the topic is too controversial or too depressing?
