FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado State University administrators say it will take longer than initially expected for the school to be carbon neutral.
Former CSU President Larry Penley had proposed the university become carbon-neutral by 2020. But current Fort Collins campus President Tony Frank says the university can't afford to make major changes right now, and it could be decades before Penley's vision is realized.
CSU's emissions for everything from electrical power generation to commutes by faculty have been rising as the university grows,but new buildings on campus are being designed to be more energy efficient.
