Carbon Challenge issued in Mt. Washington Valley

June 2008
New Hampshire Business Review;6/6/2008, Vol. 30 Issue 12, p25
The article focuses on the inauguration of the Mount Washington Valley Climate Challenge, an initiative which aims to lessen environmental impacts by residents and businesses. It was developed by the Mount Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce's Green Team and the New Hampshire Carbon Challenge. It allows the participants to mitigate their environmental impact by learning how to measure and reduce their carbon footprint.

    This paper advances the current debate on causes and effects of famines. Since Sen's food entitlement decline theory emerged in the 1980's, climate and environmental factors are widely excluded in famine analysis. Studying the causation and the processes of famines as well as the adaptations to...
