Environmental transparency: Is Duke ready to be a climate leader?

(12/09/16 12:10pm)

Since Duke University’s proposed natural gas combined heat and power (CHP) plant was announced this May, the Duke administration has responded to concerns about the plant by repeating claims that the plant would improve campus reliability and could be transitioned to biogas in the future. However, the administration has yet to address the criticisms from students, faculty, and environmental organizations about these very issues. In his letter last week, President Brodhead elaborated on the purported benefits of Duke’s proposed gas plant project; however, he failed to mention several important facts that must be considered before Duke decides to follow through with this project.
