ABSTRACT
The article covers the impact of housing on greenhouse gas emissions. Residential energy use contributes to 16% of total emissions. The suggestion is that building houses that are environmentally friendly from the start of construction is the most cost efficient and effective. Several options for reducing heat loss and minimizing home energy use are given.
