Hello, I'm Ian Booth, Director of Climate Now. With every passing day, science and common sense are making it clear that reversing climate change is urgent and that it's going to take everything we have to turn it around. Using Asheville, North Carolina and four surrounding counties as the prototype area, we are developing a model program to showcase the techniques and technologies of climate-based living. We call it lifestyle equilibrium. Using presentations, live music, webcasts, broadcasts and online tools like this proof-of-concept website done in retro design, we are reaching out to the community with actionable information, local products, services and know-how that can make our lifestyles more secure as we reverse our climate impact.
Here's what you can do:
If you're a locally owned business in the Asheville region with products and services for the low-impact use of housing, energy, transportation, food or water, register today. After you have registered, we invite you to join the local Lifestyle Leaders. As a Member, you can post videos to share your know-how with all of us. You'll help the community and get the attention of well-targeted customers. Together we can help reverse climate change and more.
Special thanks to our partners at the Blue Ridge Sustainability Institute, and to Chris Dale who has donated his time and talent to write the code that enables this interactive Climate Now website to function. Salute!
I hope you will join us in this work and thank you for your support!
