What have you done today to lower your impact?

We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.

UK Commitment to Efficiency

The UK labour government is trying get a spending package to improve efficiency standards in existing homes. Let's hope it goes through. This has been a long time coming while the talk was all about Eco towns which no-one can afford anymore, much less get financing for. The gains available through efficiency improvements are huge. I wonder if they will go far enough and endorse external cladding? Anyone know if there are any concrete plans to address this in the US? Seems like a major step towards resiliency to me.
