The Environment 0845 Sec. 018 Prof. Mark Johnson 2/7/11 Article Assignment The environmental article I chose was titled “Office of Sustainability takes cues from Mayor Nutter’s city plan. This article, which was found in the Temple News, focuses primarily on the environment of Philadelphia and, more specifically, Temple University. It briefly summarizes Mayor Nutter’s plan to “make Philadelphia the greenest city in the U.S.” and talks about how Temple is starting to copy these ideas for its own campus. In order to do this, Temple created the Office of Sustainability. This office is making it its priority to ensure that Temple becomes a completely green campus. One of these initiatives includes their Sustainability Pledge- an effort to try and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from Temple 30% by the year 2030.

This, however, is probably attributable to the fact that the author is also a Temple student. 9. Who sponsored the research? Although there was no formal research, the creation of this office is sponsored (obviously) by Temple University....

    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.
