Local Innovation to National Leadership: Pittsburgh 2030 District Progress Report for 2016

The Pittsburgh 2030 District, a strategic initiative of Green Building Alliance, published its annual Progress Report on Tuesday, celebrating four years of rigorous reductions in energy use, water consumption, and transportation emissions.

Property Partners in the Pittsburgh 2030 District have reduced their aggregated energy and water consumption by 10.7 percent and 7.4 percent, respectively. Transportation emissions for the Downtown boundary, reported in the 2015 Progress Report, were 24.2 percent below baseline, exceeding the 2020 goal.

What mackerel, volcano can tell us about climate change

Quite a bit, researchers say.

A group of scientists and academics with the University of Massachusetts and other institutions made that assessment while conducting research about a long-ago calamity in New England that was caused by the eruption of Mount Tambora half a world away in 1815.
