University of Calgary Impliments a No-Idle Policy

The U of C is going to be cracking down on all vehicles left idling on campus, which I think is a great idea.  There's absolutely no reason to let your car sit idling when the temperature is above -10 C.

I was surprised by the amoutn of CO2 that actually gets released while idling a vehicle.  From the article:
The average mid-sized Canadian vehicle emits 2.3 kilograms of greenhouse gases when idling for just 10 minutes.
