The College of Earth and Mineral Science, with its breadth of expertise spanning the environmental, social, energy, and materials sciences, is uniquely poised to find the most effective solutions to the problems posed by supplying abundant, affordable energy while addressing anthropogenic climate change and global warming. Hence, we have a responsibility to lead by example and to lead the way in sustainability research, addressing anthropogenic climate change and global warming while also considering many other threats, including nutrient loading and water quality of the Susquehanna River watershed and Chesapeake Bay, recycling efficiencies and waste stream reduction. The college is also working towards doing research more sustainably.
