This week's PBC podcast Climate Desk featured an interview Dwell magazine's Senior Editor Aaron Britt. Since the magazine's launch in 2000, Dwell has helped popularize green architecture and design. In this interview, Britt addresses the absurdity of 44,000-square-foot "green trophy houses," and discusses his perspective on LEED certification and low-tech solutions that contribute to sustainable living…
He thinks that having a greener home isn't all about technology; rather, it can be as simple as changing your mind: "I think there's this sense that we can sort of tech our way out of our energy problems, and I don't think that's the case. I think we really need to alter our habits ... We need to think about, 'What do I really need?'"
