Students in the class EAS 3110 "Energy, the Environment, and Society" designed and implemented a strategy for reducing CO2 emissions, either through affecting the personal choices of many individuals and/or intervening in the energy usage of an organization such as the university campus, parent’s workplace, local school or church, etc. Each team must quantify the CO2 reductions that are associated with their reduction activities drawing on calculations based on primary literature. The teams will present the results of their efforts and research to the class in the form of oral presentations, and to the broader Georgia Tech community in the form of poster sessions. The team with the most effective CO2 reduction strategy (total amount reduced and degree of plan’s success) at the end of the semester will accompany the instructor to Capital Hill to meet with Georgia lawmakers.
