Deason, Jeffrey A.; Friedman, Lee S. – Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, 2010
Jurisdictions are in the process of establishing regulatory systems to control greenhouse gas emissions. Short-term and sometimes long-term emissions reduction goals are established, as California does for 2020 and 2050, but little attention has yet been focused on annual emissions targets for the intervening years. We develop recommendations for…

Wurmbrand, Mitchell M.; Klotz, Thomas C. – Facilities Manager, 2010
On September 22, 2009, The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued its final rule on greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reporting. The informational literature that EPA has published to support the rule clearly states that EPA believes the vast majority of smaller GHG-emitting facilities, such as educational facilities, will not be…

TNTP, 2012
Successful teachers make successful schools. Yet some schools are better than others at accelerating student learning by developing and keeping great teachers, even compared to schools that serve the same population of students and have access to the same resources. These schools are called "greenhouse schools"--schools with carefully fostered…

Beja, Edsel L., Jr. – Social Indicators Research, 2012
The subjective well-being approach to environmental valuation is applied to analyze the valuation of greenhouse gas emissions with a fairness-adjustment in the valuation exercise. Results indicate that industrialized countries have high willingness-to-pay to reduce emissions. Developing countries differ in their valuations. Results indicate that…

Sonstrom, Wendy Jean – Adult Learning, 2006
In this article, the author compares the functions of a graduate adult education program and a greenhouse. A graduate adult education program is a place where, like in a greenhouse, exciting new hybrids can be developed--working with people outside the school of education, in different disciplines and beyond the university's walls, sharing what…

Fritsch, Eva-Maria; Lechner-Walz, Cornelia; Dreesmann, Daniel C. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2015
In terms of sustainability, renewable resources, nourishment and healthy diet, crops are important to the public. Thus, knowledge of crops is needed in order to enable people to participate in public discussions and take responsibility. This is in contrast to former surveys showing that students' knowledge of and interest in plants in general,…

Onorato, P.; Mascheretti, P.; DeAmbrosis, A. – European Journal of Physics, 2011
In this paper a simplified two-parameter model of the greenhouse effect on the Earth is developed, starting from the well known two-layer model. It allows both the analysis of the temperatures of the inner planets, by focusing on the role of the greenhouse effect, and a comparison between the temperatures the planets should have in the absence of…

Reinfried, Sibylle; Tempelmann, Sebastian – International Journal of Science Education, 2014
This paper provides a video-based learning process study that investigates the kinds of mental models of the atmospheric greenhouse effect 13-year-old learners have and how these mental models change with a learning environment, which is optimised in regard to instructional psychology. The objective of this explorative study was to observe and…

Rauch, Jason N.; Newman, Julie – International Journal of Sustainability in Higher Education, 2009
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to analyze the development and implementation of how a greenhouse gas GHG reduction target at Yale University has resulted in broad and long-term institutional commitment. Design/methodology/approach: Interviews are conducted with key individuals representing those most directly involved in developing and…

Ikonomidis, Simos; Papanastasiou, Dimitris; Melas, Dimitris; Avgoloupis, Stavros – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2012
This study explores the ideas of Greek prospective primary teachers about the anthropogenic greenhouse effect, particularly about its causes, consequences and cures. For this purpose, a survey was conducted: 265 prospective teachers completed a closed-form questionnaire. The results showed serious misconceptions in all areas (causes, consequences…

Reinfried, Sibylle; Aeschbacher, Urs; Rottermann, Benno – International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, 2012
Students' everyday ideas of the greenhouse effect are difficult to change. Environmental education faces the challenge of developing instructional settings that foster students' conceptual understanding concept of the greenhouse effect in order to understand global warming. To facilitate students' conceptual development with regard to the…

Brune, Kendall – Educational Gerontology, 2011
To discuss the relationship between residents and the management team, we must first review the transition from a medical model to a social model of care that is sweeping across America. Long-term care (LTC) management models were developed for a very autocratic and hierarchical style of management based in the 1960s. Those facilities were built…

Campbell, J. Elliott; Campbell, David E. – Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration, 2011
Distance learning is associated with a variety of benefits such as reduced use of campus facilities, increased accessibility, and control of disease transmission. In this study, we explore an additional benefit: mitigation of anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions contributing to global climate change. A survey was presented to 500 students…

Gattiker, Thomas F.; Lowe, Scott E.; Terpend, Regis – Decision Sciences Journal of Innovative Education, 2012
Many universities are endeavoring to understand and reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions--or carbon footprints. Hard-copy textbooks are (perhaps surprisingly) a large component of this footprint. Because they are "virtual," electronic texts (e-texts) are often considered environmentally superior to conventional hard-copy texts.…
