Default Are Green Research Practices Needed?



Green practices have been attracting increasing attention from
researchers over the last two decades. But are researchers themselves
good stewards when it comes to environmentally friendly research
practices? By conservative estimates, a typical researcher uses
25,000 sheets of paper for research per year, which are two trees per
year.

A recent study conducted by researchers from Saint Joseph’s University
and Drexel University provided some interesting insights into this
question. Take a look at this thought-provoking study at:

2 trees?? Trees generally planted specifically to generate paper??

One has to ask - so what? I'm not aware these folks accept the role of "environmental steward" nor accept the premise that it would take precedence over their research - much less that this role is the sole determinant of value.

Bottom line - their contribution to what are generally communicate to be environmental issues (solid waste, air pollution, etc) is tiny vs. that of the broad population.
