Radio Broadcast: National Campus Energy Leader Speaks Out on Global Warming
from Wildlife Promise
Commentary on climate change by Walter Simpson, University of Buffalo (UB) Energy Officer and long-time national campus sustainability advocate, was aired this morning on WBFO. His commentary, noting the news stories reporting that 2005 tied for the warmest year on record, criticized the City of Jamestown, NY for its plans to build a coal-fired power plant and asked that anyone close to Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown find the climate action report prepared for Buffalo a few years ago and put it on his desk for action. Mr. Simpson also called on UB to incorporate significant carbon emissions in its 2020 planning process, noting that academic excellence should occur within the context of social and environmental responsibility.
