An updated carbon footprint for the SUNY Oswego campus was prepared utilizing the Clean Air and Cool Plant Campus Carbon Calculator was done in 2009. Results showed the campus produced a net eCO2 of 44,736 metric tons during the 2008. On-campus stationary equipment is the largest contributor of CO2 on the campus (40 percent for 2008). The largest contributor in this area is the central heating plant that utilizes natural gas to produce steam for heating the campus. Fuel oil is occasionally used as a backup source. Purchased electricity is the second largest contributor of CO2 (31 percent for 2008). The third contributor is transportation (29 percent for 2008). which includes commuting, direct transportation and air travel, with commuting being the largest factor in this category. (Information comes from page 4 of the Climate Action Plan, 2009.)
The issues facing Oswego are large and hard to solve within a short period of time, but it can be done. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change provides a lot of the science background about our greatest current environmental problems as a planet and offers advice on what needs to be done.
To find out more specific information, talk with a professor! They have much the latest knowledge on climate change and what needs to be done to change our behaviors and habits. Kestas Bendinskas is a great resource, as are many other professors in the biology, meteorology and chemistry departments. The knowledge doesn't stop there, as teachers in political science, such as Lisa Glidden, and economics, such as Said Atri, can explain different aspects of climate change and how it affects political, social, natural and economic parts of our lives.
