B. Dispelling Myths 1. Myth # 1: Green Building is Complicated 2. Myth #2: Consumers are not concerned with building green 3. Myth #3 : Green building is expensive EPC’s – Energy Saving Performance Contracts Integrative Design
Key Findings   American Institute of Architects    Nationwide Voter Survey 2009 Thinking about energy in the United States -- how would you characterize the energy situation right now in this country?  Would you say that:   2009  2007 We are doing well   4  5 We are doing okay 17 19 We are having some problems 29 34 We are on the verge of a crisis 28 28 We are in an energy crisis 21 13 COMMENT : Voters see the energy problem more negatively than they did two years ago, but not by large margins. Doing “well” and “okay” combined has declined from 24% to 21% and “verge of a crisis” combined with “in an energy  crisis” has increased from 41% to 49%. All responses of a negative nature total  78% indicating that Americans believe that the energy situation is a problem of one  degree or another.

Maintenance of a building’s site is a fundamental component of comprehensive, sustainable building operation. Sustainable Sites
The United States alone loses 2 billion tons of topsoil per year. This is of great ecological concern as one inch of topsoil can take 500 years to form naturally Sustainable Sites

Energy and Atmosphere Dr. Nocera said human activities, in energy terms, right now are essentially a “12.8 trillion watt light bulb.” Our energy thirst will probably be 30 trillion watts, or 30 terrawatts, by 2050 with the human population heading toward 9 billion.

Conserve Water ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Conserve Water “ The reality is that, over the 30-year life of a typical home mortgage, there is a 26% chance of a flood that exceeds the 100-year standard. Over the course of a century, there is a 63% chance that a flood greater than the 100-year standard will strike, a 26% chance of two such floods, and an 8% chance of three such floods. So it is hardly a statistical surprise that the upper Midwest suffered 100-year floods in 1993 and 2008.” WSJ Article 4-30-2011
Conserve Water Japan and the Netherlands, for example, protect against river floods to a 2,000-year standard for densely populated areas and a 200-year standard for rural zones.
Water Efficiency Americans extract 3700 billion gallons per year more than they return to the natural water system to recharge aquifers and other water sources.

Excessive  Moisture a) Use Dehumidifier in Summer Months b) Install Air Exchanger 4. Improperly Vented Appliances a) Prevent Back Drafting: Flow of Fumes into House and Not Up the Chimney b) Carbon Monoxide Especially Dangerous c) Electrical Appliances Not As Dangerous
Audits in the Real Estate Transaction A. Role of the Real Estate Licensee 1. Be the Source of the Resource, Not the Source of the Information 2. No Recommendations 3. No Affiliation with Suppliers B. Useful for Sellers 1. Determine If Feature or Appliance Adds To or Detracts From Asking Price 2. Energy-Saving Features Added to Multiple Listing Service (MLS) Information C. Useful for Buyers 1.

  • 70. Conserve Water “ The reality is that, over the 30-year life of a typical home mortgage, there is a 26% chance of a flood that exceeds the 100-year standard. Over the course of a century, there is a 63% chance that a flood greater than the 100-year standard will strike, a 26% chance of two such floods, and an 8% chance of three such floods. So it is hardly a statistical surprise that the upper Midwest suffered 100-year floods in 1993 and 2008.” WSJ Article 4-30-2011

  5. Feeling a bit parched? While about 70 percent of the Earth&apos;s surface is covered with water, 97 percent of the water is salty ocean water, which is unfit for human consum­ption. Of the 3 percent that&apos;s fresh water, 2 percent is frozen into glaciers , leaving only 1 percent of the entire world&apos;s water supply fit to drink. Think of that the next time you take a really long shower.
