(thanks to ACUPCC twitter account for the link! - we're off to Chicago this week for the annual summit, where we've just announced Bill Clinton will be keynoting - along with other greats like Janine Benyus, Peter Senge, Rick Fedrizzi, and more! Great chance to bring some press and attention to the sustainability work the higher education sector is doing)

“We will pay for this one way or another,” Gen. Anthony C. Zinni, a retired Marine and the former head of the Central Command, wrote recently in a report he prepared as a member of a military advisory board on energy and climate at CNA, a private group that does research for the Navy. “We will pay to reduce greenhouse gas emissions today, and we’ll have to take an economic hit of some kind.“Or we will pay the price later in military terms,” he warned. “And that will involve human lives.”
