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.

some more results regarding our efficiency measures

Today the outside temps reached 90º, the maximum inside temps reached 80º, no AC required.
When we got up this morning it was 76º inside, after our policy of aggressive morning ventilation was undertaken we got that down to 75º. For most of the day the house stabilized at 77º. At the hottest part of the day the house got up to 79º but we exacerbated the situation with a half hour of cooking, the oven really cranks out a lot of heat, which took it up to 80º.

So I'm still stoked, we got through a 90º day without using the AC! YeeHaw!

Impressive! I've found that doing without AC you become accustomed to the heat and 80 doesn't feel so hot anymore!

You are absolutely right about that Lindsay. We find the times we spend in AC spaces makes the returning to the natural climate more difficult. Fortunately, we don't often visit AC spaces.
Thanks for stopping by and for the comment.
