We Can Solve It! I love these motivational Climate Change videos and of course Al Gore is a classic. They are great to watch periodically to get revved up to do what we need to do. Sometimes you get wrapped up in the day to day and forget that if we all just do a few little things everyday big things can change. Not to mention the big things that Architects can do. The best part about being an architect is our purchasing power. We specify millions of dollars worth of building materials each year. As architects we can choose to specify the material with a smaller carbon footprint or the material that will provide greater energy efficiency – and the market will change.
