No one ever said that affecting change would be easy. To members of the Indiana Public Interest Research Group (INPIRG), a student-run social and environmental activist organization on the IU campus, this adage could not ring more true.
Currently, the group is focusing its time and effort on the Campus Climate Challenge, its global warming awareness, emissions reduction and clean energy advocacy campaign. In particular, members are crafting suggestions to reduce the 68,000 tons of Indiana coal that the physical plant burns yearly.
As global climate change begins to visibly manifest itself around the world, INPIRG is advocating efficiency upgrades and policy changes that would lessen IU's emissions.
