Challenge: As the global average temperature warms, we are seeing more fires, more floods, more devastating storms, more droughts, and increasing crop failures.
Solution: As Ghandi once said: "We must become the change we want to see." Working together, and supporting one another, we can slow climate change, and reduce its ultimate severity. We owe a livable planet to our children, our grandchildren, and future generations.
Challenge: Buildings use half of all energy in the US.
Solution: Making our buildings more efficient with insulation, air sealing, better heating and cooling systems, and more efficient lighting and appliances is one of the quickest ways to cut our CO2 emissions. Not only does this help the environment, it saves us money, and makes us more comfortable. You can't ask for a better return on investment!
Challenge: Most of the energy we use pumps CO2 and other warming gases into the atmosphere, where they get stuck, trapping heat, and making the planet warmer.
Solution: Switching to clean, renewable energy sources will reduce the amount of warming gases released when we use energy.
You want to do something about the environment, but there are reasons you can't make efficiency or sustainability improvements in your own home. Or maybe your home is already as green as it can be.
