What do you think of when you hear "green building"?

Climate change is the one of the most important issues of our time. Yet most of us don't know how to think about it or what to do about it. I've made this site as an outlet for my thoughts on and journey through this topic, specifically within the context of the building industry — an industry that fascinates me because it is so tied to who we are as a modern society and because it has enormous potential to reduce environmental impact on a global scale. Although I focus on the US building sector in my writing, I hope this page will provide food for thought for individuals everywhere, in every field.
