The “191 Battle of the Buildings” (modeled after the EPA’s national contest) was a challenge for Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 to reduce their Carbon Footprint.  Energy reductions (calculated from buildings that saved) resulted in nearly 9% in energy reductions for the district. 

The MN GreenCorps program is a statewide AmeriCorps program, administered through the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA).  Member Jothsna Harris will be serving in District 191 for a total of 11 months, with a focus on energy conservation.  More information about the MN GreenCorps, please visit The MPCA website at http://www.pca.state.mn.us/.

Climate Lesson Update: April 2013

"Everything is Okay.  Humanity, Working Together, Solved Climate Change."

That's what the newspaper should have read this April when Dr. James Hansen announced his retirement.  It would be written about our greatest success story as a civilization, and the last paragraph would be a quiet "thank you" to Dr. Hansen for making it all possible.  Yes, if James Hansen had HIS way, that's exactly it: his life's work fulfilled.
