Lash writes for the Huffington Post on why students must be the leaders in solving our energy crisis, and how we have the power to make change where we live and work.
"In a few weeks, world leaders will gather in Paris seeking agreement on measures to reduce emissions that are warming the Earth. In past years as head of the World Resources Institute, I would have been caught up in a frenzy of preparation: Analysis of each country's position; strategy meetings; exchanges of political gossip about the latest machinations of industries and countries; press briefings. To be honest, I am glad I will not be there. I can get more done in our college community here in Western Massachusetts, working with students, staff, and faculty to change our practices and reduce emissions."
