IamA guy with climate change solutions. Really and for true! I just finished speaking at an energy conference and am desperately trying to these solutions into more brains! AMA!
The average US adult footprint is 30 tons. About half that is direct and half of that is indirect (government and corporations).
If you live in Montana, switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater cuts your carbon footprint by 29 tons. That as much as parking 7 petroleum fueled cars. And reduces a lot of other pollutants.
Here is my four minute blurb at the energy conference yesterday https://youtu.be/ybS-3UNeDi0?t=2
I wish that everybody knew about this form of heating and cooking - and about the building design that uses that heat from the summer to heat the home in winter. Residential heat in a cold climate is a major player in global issues - and I am struggling to get my message across.
EDIT - had to sleep. Back now. Wow, the reddit night shift can get dark....
