This Thursday is an EarthWorks and Student Council on Sustainability (SCS) joint meeting at lunchtime in Berthoud Hall 106, and I won’t be able to make it. I am personally very pleased with the young/new blood that was at the last meeting – I am getting the feeling that this whole enviro-thingy may continue without me! Very cool.
Also, just to get it our there, there is a Presidential Sustainability Committee meeting this Friday from 11am to 1pm in the Student Center, Ballroom C. This event is open to the public, and the more students that show up, the better it will go. Mines recently got a C- grade from a third party group that was rating all the Colorado Schools on their level of greenness – CSU got an A- and I know we can do better.
Additionally, is anyone paying attention to the amount of renewable energy research going on in Colorado? Not just at Mines, or solar panels, but wind, and ‘green’ infrastructure, and more.
I am really excited, and confused with the whole recession coming and all the crap that has hit the fan in the banking worldâ€¦ I know Colorado has a lot of resources, like oil shale and sun and wind, and I am hoping that somehow these assets will ensure the state stays above water.
And on a side note, I am really enjoying the ripening fruit on the many trees in both Boulder and Golden-there is so much to be thankful for!
