Efficient + Disaster Resilient = Sustainable

Picture a so-called “green” building in a floodplain.  Now picture a storm-hardened home guzzling gas like there is no tomorrow.

Hi Evan,

Thanks for the personal welcome note.

Would it be appropriate for me to call attention to your new website on my "energyfolks" email list (with about 3000 members)? If so, could you write a short paragraph that I could just paste into my next blurb?
