Divorce: What's Really Fueling Climate Change?

Divorce: What's Really Fueling Climate Change?

Move over, carbon dioxide. New research published at LiveScience says that divorce has just as much to do with the uptick in temperatures. It's not that divorce and carbon emissions are unrelated...

it's just that the growing divorce rate means more people are living in more households. In fact, the authors of the study found that there's around a third fewer people living in divorced households, which makes perfect sense when you think about it.

So what are we supposed to do? Get and stay married? That's certainly one option. But cohabitation is another, and that's where design comes in. We need homes that are easy for several people to live in, regardless of relationship status.
