This week, I wanted to share with you one of the motivations for us to build a Net Zero house.
There are lots of motivating factors, and one person's motivations may be different from another's.
First though, regarding our project, last week was a short week with lots of 'behind the scenes' work and little visual changes. Next week I hope to have much more about the house.
Ok, now back to my biggest personal motivator.
We are already seeing the effects in our current world. And the impacts are being felt most by those that can least afford it.
Scientific organizations around the world, NASA and numerous US Scientific organizations, the Pope's Encyclical, many other religions and religious leaders, the director of the CIA, the Department of Defense, many businesses, insurance companies, advocates of the poor all agree something needs to be done.
We have the technology available today to make a difference.
And each and every one of us can make a difference.
If you are looking to learn about climate change, and I highly recommend you do, there are some great resources available.
Here are some great videos.
Richard Alley has a great book called "Earth the Operator's Manual".
It is also available as videos.
More resources can be found on the Partners & Resources page.
Mark really doesn't like to talk about himself, the house is much more interesting.
