This website describes the actions undertaken by students at Lewis and Clark College to comply with the greenhouse gas emissions targets called for in the Kyoto Protocol. The effort was student-driven, and will cost approximately $10 per student. This achievement is the result of a three-year student campaign involving greenhouse gas inventories, student polls demonstrating overwhelming support, emissions reductions on campus, and the use of student fees to purchase "offsets" from the Climate Trust, a Portland nonprofit. The site provides links to articles by the students who spearheaded the movement, as well as more in-depth coverage of their efforts.
