Most discussions surrounding green building begin with a pessimistic question, "How much will it cost?" but this is the wrong question. Explore a new paradigm that buildings that save energy, water and resources are not more expensive, but that we can no longer afford to forsake these opportunities. Based on the new book, "Green$ense for the Home", this talk walks you through a fun, unusual and whirlwind journey of the politics, pessimism and polemics working against our inevitable and sustainable future. Presented by the acclaimed author of "Green Building for Dummies," Eric Corey Freed.
