Climate change is on my mind these days.  Every time I go out to a building site or work on a renovation, I can see how the earth or the structure has weathered its environment.   When I watch the news or listen to what is going on with our City or Country Government, I can learn about the tides and environmental concerns being worked on and studied.

I have always worked on making my designs and projects as compatible with the surrounding area as possible and I am constantly learning new ways to keep the structure sustainable and Green.  It is my job and my value to keep growing my understanding so that I can assist in planning the future and the buildings that every living thing will need.

Climate change laws were submitted to Congress and our Legislature – they were good starts to addressing the problems and concerns of the environment.   From my assessment, they were good starts to the Architecture 2030 program and they were “baby steps” towards what the citizens want to have happen.

There were some incentives to help homeowners and small businesses get a grip.

But I think the Greed factor of big corporation and industries are still driving the resistance parade.  There were not enough votes and so they were shelved.

I know that our congressional and legislative representatives have a very short times to learn and understand the words of the experts and the folks on the ground, and I am not alone, Frog Blog is responding to this in frustration, in feeling that these divided and shouting lawmakers are still not being responsible to what the earth and most citizens are understanding.

Climate change is greatly on my mind as I prepare to vote in our primary election.  I want to be a voice for our future.   How about you?

Wanted to share this TED lecture with you about the oil spill – I think it is good information to share:

    I thought this was a powerful TED lecture and assisted my thinking fresh thoughts about climate change. As Frog Blog, I feel like the evidence is right in front of us and I am disappointed in the Senate putting it on the shelf.
