Creating a Green community means providing
jobs for people of color who build it and providing homes that
are affordable to working and low income residents. We need to
redefine environmental construction as redesigning entire communities
so people can get to where they need to go without individuals
Adding eco-gadgets to sprawling oversized houses
is not Green.
Should individual, above ground homes be a
thing of the past? Is it time for new homes to be multi-family,
co-housing or earth sheltered?
How low can an energy efficient home go? Half
as much energy as the typical home of today? A tenth as much energy?
Could we actually build affordable homes that generate all the
heating, cooling and electricity they need in their neighborhood?
How would we do it?
