Environmental Movement at SMU Shows Results

An environmental plan at Southern Methodist University is saving its southwest Texas locale from 3 million pounds of pollution from power plants, according to the EPA. It's the equivalent of building a 390-acre forest, but this move just required switching energy sources to make at least 3 percent of the university's energy "green." SMU is the first large university in the Southwest to go green--and a student-led environmental campaign, launched last year, gets the credit for that, the Daily Campus reports.
