Week 4 - Discussion 1 A Carbon-Neutral Community Plan for Ashfordton [WLO: 1] [CLOs: 3, 4, 6] Imagine that you are a resident of Ashfordton, a community whose characteristics are described below. You have come together with your neighbors for a special meeting to devise a plan for helping the community become carbon-neutral by 2050, meaning that by that time, no net carbon dioxide emissions will be produced by residents as a whole. Fortunately, you have all showed up to the meeting with lots of knowledge you gained from your readings in this course. Now it is time to put your thinking cap on and get to work! Your plan should consist of the following elements: Energy conservation measures (e.g., promoting carpooling by adding special lanes to local highways) Steps to move toward sustainable energy production (e.g., installing solar panels on town government buildings) o Reducing energy consumption will help, but some actions will have to involve switching to other power sources for buildings and vehicles as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
