APUS is a Finalist for a Climate Leadership Award

I have written about some of the sustainability initiatives at American Public University System (APUS)  in the past.  I signed the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC) in September 2007, making APUS a charter signatory to this initiative with a mission of making colleges and universities more sustainable.  Even though our status as a university with only online programs reduces our impact on the environment, we have worked diligently to minimize our carbon footprint. 

Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution – And How It Can Renew America by Thomas Friedman

Thomas Friedman is well-known for his book, The World is Flat. His 2008 work, Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution – And How it Can Renew America, is insightful and provocative. If the global economy and U.S. election were not the two biggest topics in the media, I am certain that Friedman’s latest book would receive more coverage in the press.
