one of the best presentations I have seen!

It's Zero or Nothing: Solutions for a Post-Carbon Economy (2014)
$8.99 SALE PRICE - INSTANT DOWNLOAD
This is Eric's brand new, 2014 talk exploring a new way of designing and constructing our buildings, following the principles of Nature.

Even if every new building were to obtain LEED Platinum certification, it wouldn't reduce our current carbon emissions. In truth we need to focus on making all buildings be net zero energy, net zero water and net zero carbon, including our existing ones. The next generation of buildings can't simply continue trying to be "less bad" or make us feel guilty for our lifestyles. What is needed are living, regenerative buildings that do no harm and repair the damage we've done. In this talk we will explore new models for how to transform our buildings into living habitats.

I didn't realize how small I was thinking
