City Colleges Go Green & Spend Green

Mayor Bloomberg has convinced some of the [city's big-name colleges and universities] to participate in his Big Apple sustainability plan by reducing carbon emissions over the next decade. Fordham University, Columbia University and Pratt Institute are among the forward-thinking institutions, according to the New York Post, and the specifics should be announced by Bloomy tomorrow.


Meanwhile, it seems SUNY has been putting its money towards slightly less altruistic goals—like increasing one [professor’s salary to $666,995] a year. Ferrari-driving Dr. Alain Kaloyeros is head of SUNY Albany's College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering and received what is believed to be a record $142,000-a-year pay hike last week. Turns out, he’s also on the payroll of the SUNY Research Foundation at nearly $300,000 a year. All in all, he’s bringing home a whopping $947,538 each year. Governor [Spitzer, who makes $179,000 a year, isn’t bitter](http://www.1010wins.com/pages/541641.php?contentType=4&contentId=575112), saying Kaloyeros’ pay matches his talent—now that's rare.
