Summer Scholars 2011 Curriculum & Activities:

Carbon Mitigation Activities
The Carbon Mitigation Activities included an introduction to stabilization wedges and sand dune stabilization techniques.

Stabilization Wedges A Princeton Environmental Institute Project
To get on track to avoiding dramatic climate change, the world must avoid emitting about 200 billion tons of carbon, or eight 25 billion ton wedges, over the next 50 years. This is the heart of the Carbon Mitigation Initiative's (CMI) Stabilization Wedges concept, a simple framework for understanding both the carbon emissions cuts needed to avoid dramatic climate change and the tools already available to do so.
