TLPeck - Going for Green: Insight into sustainable way of life


October 27, 2009

Hello world!

Welcome to my blog. I have been a building design professional all of my career, doing things according to the construction conventions of the day and lean of budget. However, during this economic lull I decided to take up the cause against global warming and do what I can to forestall and possibly reverse ┬áits adverse affects. Current building methods and means, and the related infrastructure that supports the built environment, are responsible for as much as 40 percent of the carbon dioxide ’soup’ effecting greenhouse warming. [I recently watched the PBS/Nova telecast 'Extreme Ice' that forecast major loses of glaciers and continental ice caps that would cause sea level rise of about 3 feet by the end of the century if global temperature rise was to continue unabated.]

For my part I currently am studying ‘green’ building technologies, methods and materials, and intend to acquire national certification as a green building professional. With that I’ll endeavor to help reverse that greenhouse effect with more carbon-neutral building design. I’ll use this site to inform you of my progress, and to possibly enlighten you with useful information that I might glean from various sources along the way. Thanks for visiting.

  1. Excellent start with your blog, Terry! I look forward to following your progress and learning along the way.
