Great work, Dusty my friend.
At a recent conference I attended, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. said that the last energy crisis previous to oil was the proposed abolition of the Slave Trade back in the late 1700's. Our founding fathers chose to remain silent about that because although they believed it to be immoral, it was felt that we were economically imbedded into this "free" source of energy -- human slave labor. It was seen as economically unfeasible to wean ourselves off of this energy source as a burgeoning country. RFK said that England took the lead and abolished slavery first, and that rather than an economic hardship, it became an economic boom -- jobs were created and manufacturers paid what was necessary for raw materials. England rode the crest of that economic boom while the U.S. fell into a civil war because we could see the future but we couldn't act on it.
Sustainable building is a step toward the prosperity that awaits us.
