The Climate at Yale

According to Yale University’s Climate Initiative, this Ivy League school in New Haven, Connecticut produced greenhouse gas emissions of 285,000 metric tons in 2002, more than 30 developing nations. Most of those emissions come from power plants, purchased power and on-campus buildings. But things are looking up. Last year, Yale President Richard Levin announced the university’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent below its 1990 levels by 2020.
