Greenhouse gas emissions on Long Island decreased in 2010 by nearly 10 percent from 2005 levels. This is according to studies by the Old Westbury-based New York Institute of Technology.
Students and faculty from the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences worked on the greenhouse gas emission inventory, known as the Long Island Carbon Footprint Project. As part of the study, funded by the Rauch Foundation, the NYIT group updated and improved a 2005 study conducted by another nonprofit organization and expanded the collection of data from numerous sectors, including transportation and other residential and commercial activities. They also classified the source of emissions generated through electricity, natural gas, fuel oil, gasoline, and diesel fuel.
