The University of Colorado Denver and the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center were consolidated into one institution in 2006.

No data exists for a 2005 baseline and thus we have utilized a trendline of three years worth of data to create 2005 baseline data.
(needed to do this, but don't see that you have three years of data to build the trendline! What is reported above is still 2006)

The decrease in emissions is largely explained through the move to a new, more efficient campus and the subtraction of the older campus from the inventory in 2010.
