A handful of good articles from the past few weeks, on climate change and sustainable building.
- ‘A “Manhattan project” to develop new breakthrough technologies is not a priority component of the effort to stabilize at 350 to 450 ppm.‘
Climate Progress, the “indispensible blog” according to Tom Friedman, lays down the law on what is and isn’t going to solve the climate change crisis.
- Climate policy myths
Grist Magazine’s online edition is presenting, and debunking, the top myths related to climate change and the policies needed to address it.
- “Now buildings must evolve again”
Building Sustainable Design magazine, from the UK, discusses how builders need to start reincorporating passive efficiency elements into their high-rise building designs.
- “Western European architects, engineers, and builders are ahead of us [in the U.S.] in the widespread use of passive design techniques”
Gerry Yudelson tells us what Europeans already know about sustainable design, but we Americans either don’t know or have forgotten.
I hope you find these as interesting as I did – let me know in the comments.
