Cool news update
The Coalition has been working cooperatively with the Village of Glen Ellyn to find a way to perform a "baseline emissions inventory" for carbon dioxide and other gases that contribute to climate change at minimal cost during these austere times. Once this is done, we have a basis for developing plans for concrete and achievable emission reductions in the future. The good news is that the U.S. EPA has made available a summer intern to work on gathering data that is required by an emissions inventory computer model. The intern will run the model free of charge. This is also makes it unecessary for the Village to purchase the computer model at this time.
