In the magazine's December edition, an article on "carbon neutrality" by Texas freelance writer Eric Butterman, (they can't find a J-school student to write this stuff?), makes the amazing claim, which Butterman attributes to the university's sustainability operations officer, John Riley.
"The solar program is rapidly reaching the break-even point financially," Butterman paraphrases Riley.
Just one problem with that statement. No way can it be true.
