What does the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, ,
Charlie Rose,
Jerry Brown,  ,
Passive House, , and myself have in common? 

We all know it is time to act on Climate Change. And we all can act.

So what can we do?

For myself, as a designer of buildings we occupy,  you will see many

 references in this blog to the Passive House strategy, the definitive 
approach to increase energy efficiency thus reducing energy use.
Take it seriously. It makes eminent sense.
In our lucky coastal California climate application of the strategy 
adds only a few percentage points to the overall cost of new buildings. 
Retrofits just a little more. So looking forward, take the long view, 
the return is positive both monetarily and globally.

So what can you do?
