University 303 Report - 1999
This report quantifies the main sources of carbon emissions on Rice University's campus and briefly analyzes a few possible methods of carbon abatement. Carbon emissions contribute to the larger problem of global warming. The Kyoto Protocol, which mandates a 7% reduction of emissions from 1990 levels by the year 2010, is a global agreement that may be ratified by the Senate in the near future. If this is the case, Rice may be required to significantly reduce its carbon emissions. Our calculations find that Rice currently emits 19,900 tons of carbon into the atmosphere. These findings are broken down as follows.
