I just can’t quite understand why we, as a planet, are completely dragging our feet when it comes to climate change.
And our country, supposedly a world leader in innovation, is one of the worst.
I don’t know if it’s an unwillingness to change or because we’re all accustomed to getting what we want with a mouse click while inside all that HVAC. For sure, we’re soft when it comes to being willing to put the needs of our planet and future generations in front of our immediate wants. There was even a big stink inside the zone controlled HVAC of the office when the company wanted to boost the thermostat in the summer. I mean we aren’t talking about going from a thermostat setting of 71 to 90. It was just a simple change to the thermostat that was like 4 degrees. The company even did the carbon offset math to show the difference just that much makes. Still, you’d a thought the world was ending because the thermostat was going up 3 or 4 degrees. So I don’t hold out a bunch of hope that we’ll get it together. Still, in my personal life, my wife and I try to be sure that we’re living as sustainably as we can. The geothermal heat pump we chose for the heating and cooling of our home is a prime example. The geo heat pump uses the earth’s near constant temperature to extract heating and cooling energy. It’s the most efficient and sustainable HVAC equipment we could get our hands on.
