Talking 'bout Water in Lubbock

In its second annual "Cool Schools" feature, Sierra took Texas Tech University of Lubbock, Texas to task for a lack of unified water conservation plans. Writers Lea Hartog and Michael Fox noted that policies as simple as watering the grounds at night instead of during the day could reduce water needs by up to 25 percent. That's gotten people talking in Lubbock, where an editorial in today's  Lubbock Avalanche Journal calls for the state-supported university to identify improvements that might save money and resources. It begins: "How much should Texas Tech care about opinions in the Sierra Club's Sierra magazine? We would wager the answers we would hear from various offices at Texas Tech would range from 'not at all' to 'very much' with a tendency toward the former." You can lend your two cents to the conversation about green colleges and Sierra's ranking system here.
