Energy-Efficient Buildings

In large cities such as New York, buildings account for most of the greenhouse gas emissions. The William J. Clinton Foundation has developed a plan to reduce energy usage in buildings, and organized an international coalition of banks and 16 of the world’s largest cities to implement it. Billions of dollars have been pledged to address the problem. For details, read the story in the International Herald Tribune.

    Clinton is right on target- if a bit late. Ed Mazria’s is convincing the architects and the builders and the cities of the imperitive of changing the way we build, use and reuse buildings and materials. Visit this site- join up – spread the word – this is incredibly important.
    Ed wrote the Passive Solar Home in the 70s and is now designing carbon-neutral buildings.
