Lowered Thermostats Have Had Large Environmental Impact
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Lower building temperatures on campus this winter have lessened our demand for energy and precluded the production of 296 tons of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas created by combustion. This figure comes from the Blue, Gold and Green Committee, which was formed in October to help reduce the University's impact on the environment.

To give you a sense of how much gas 296 tons is, consider:

  • A vehicle that has been driven 556,247 miles creates 296 tons of carbon dioxide.
  • It takes 60,000 urban trees to absorb 296 tons of the gas. (These calculations are based on data from the U.S. Forest Service and D.J. Nowak [1993 & 1994].)

Lower thermostats enabled the University to save about 3.9 billion BTUs in heat this winter over the same period a year ago, after correcting for temperature variations. A BTU, or British thermal unit, is a basic measurement of heat.
