Rinfret and Levintova classes raised money for carbon credits

Here’s a followup to stories last fall about UW-Green Bay students participating in Global Summit exercises and raising a little money in the process. The students, from Prof. Sara Rinfret’s American Government class and Prof. Katia Levintova’s Global Politics class, raised enough donations as a byproduct of the exercise to purchase carbon credits they say will save three tons of power-plant carbon dioxide emissions and play a role, albeit small, in helping protect ecologically sensitive places like New York’s Adirondacks. Jeff Cook, co-president of the PEAC student group, compiled the research that made the carbon-credit activity happen.
