Berkeley Basks in Green Glory, Alliteration

It ain't easy being green ... Ah, finally some external validation [1] for Berkeley’s environmental self-righteousness. Nah, we’re kidding (mostly), but Berkeley is legitimately one of only 15 universities that received a perfect 99 score in the Princeton Review’s second annual “Green Ratings [2].” According to the Princeton Review people, the ratings were based on schools’ “commitment to promoting environmental sustainability, academic preparation for green jobs and support for green building projects.” And probably also being the former headquarters of the Secretary of Energy [3].

Green with envy yet, Harvard? Oh wait, they made the list, too. Well, whatevs, we takes what we can gets.
