ABSTRACT
The article provides information about the National Wildlife Federation's (NWF) "Campus Ecology" program. This campaign was launched as a part of this program to get colleges and universities to reduce their global warming pollution. As per the aim of this program, each one will work to reduce their school's greenhouse gas emissions bellow 2005 levels by 2 percent per year in order to achieve the groups' overarching goal that is a 90 percent drop by 2050. This effort removes the argument that the problem of global warming is too big, too expensive and too distant. Larry J. Schweiger, NWF president, emphasizes why focusing on universities to reduce global warming pollution makes a lot of sense.

    The economic benefits of a multi-gas approach to climate change mitigation are clear. However, there is still a debate on how to make the trade-off between different greenhouse gases (GHGs). The trade-off debate has mainly centered on the use of Global Warming Potentials (GWPs), governing the...
