There is some confusion out there about what it really means to be green. Call them urban or suburban myths if you like.  Planting a tree for example is not going to solve the problem of greenhouse gases. Even if everyone on the planet planted one, or ten or a hundred.  It’s not even the equivalent of a band aid on the problem.  The only thing that will make a difference is reducing, perhaps drastically reducing, our consumption rate of carbon based energy sources.  The next time you see the word green in the context of an environmental impact on the atmosphere evaluate what is being presented as valid against that very real measure.  So then what does being “green” really mean?   It means Getting Reduced Energy Expenditure Now!  This book introduces you to ten projects you can do, now…yourself, to reduce greenhouse gases. It allows you to calculate the difference these green my home improvement projects will make in your home, your pocketbook and on the environment. You can calculate the savings not only in dollars and cents, but in carbon and equivalents not sent into the atmosphere.   Some of these projects have immediate payback others are longer term. In the daylight of a longer term view for ROI (return on investment) these projects have appeal beyond a single ownership of a home and look to the entire life span of the home or building for considering the ROI.  Some of these longer term projects you may want to consider as a legacy towards fulfilling some degree of social and generational responsibility.
