    In a study published in the February issue of the journal Sustainability, graduate student Eren Cifci and economics professor Matthew E. Oliver analyzed the effects of the Kyoto Protocol on the signatories’ greenhouse gas, or GHG, emissions and their per capita gross domestic product growth — a standard measure used to compare the relative growth of national economies. They found declines in greenhouse gas emissions and per capita gross domestic product growth, suggesting that “the trade-off between GHG emissions reductions via participation in an international climate agreement and short-run economic growth is a relevant and important consideration in the design and implementation of such agreements,” according to their paper.

    As 2018 and the new semester get into full swing, I would like to take a moment to reflect on the effort we began this past fall, in the wake of the troubling events that affected our campus — including the death of Scout Schultz and the violence at the vigil in Scout’s honor.
