Eyes On The Prize

Just received this cute video by the Cohen Bros. on misrepresentation of "clean coal technology": As mentioned in an earlier post, we have a lot of information now on how to build more sustainably but the big picture is to shut down polluting energy sources. While it's good to use recyclable materials and drive a high mpg car, we should focus on not using energy from coal plants; not use oil for heating; and to walk, or drive a car which does not use oil. These simple steps will vastly change our carbon footprint. And these changes are first steps towards a sustainable planet.

Now catching and eliminating existing green house gases- that's a challenge we need to work on while the previous mentioned steps are implemented.
