Is Suspension The Solution?

NYC wants to cut all greenhouse gas emissions 80% by the year 2050. What are greenhouse gases? Why should we cut them and what will it take?

In the fall of 2017, CUP collaborated with Teaching Artist Douglas Paulson and Sara Smithback’s Chemistry classes at the International High School for Health Sciences in Elmhurst, Queens to find out what greenhouse gases are, where they come from, and how they affect us.

To investigate, students participated in a scavenger hunt to examine the neighborhood’s carbon footprint, surveyed community members about climate change, and interviewed Rolando Guzman from St. Nick’s Alliance and Ross MacWhinney from the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability.

Students collaborated on this set of postcards to teach others about greenhouse gases, how they contribute to global climate change, and what we can do about it!
