Most of the technological interventions in the global environment have focused on the supply side:
The availability of land (conservation)
The availability of fuel (gas crises, investment in clean tech)
The availability of greener products with greener materials (green product development/greenwashing)
In this class we focus on the demand side – making buildings so that they demand less from the earth. But to understand the context, we need to know our recent history.
Understanding Citizen Science:
Calculate your carbon footprint.
1. Calculate the carbon footprint of your country:
2. Find a personal carbon footprint calculator that you trust. Prepare a one page/slide view of your footprint. Why did you choose this particular calculator. What were the inputs. What did you learn.
