Weatherizing: Healthy, Wealthy And ?

Weatherizing: Healthy, Wealthy And Wise (in partnership with Weatherize DC) December 16th

Weatherization training with experts - covering energy basics, health and safety, and hands on repair - the technical skills of air sealing, caulking, weatherstripping, and more. If you live in an apartment or a house you can make your home more energy efficient, The recent cold blast blew a bitter reminder to keep the cold air out of your home, but not just because it'll freeze your wallet open.

Heating with fossil fuels contributes to pollution that causes health woes from asthma attacks to death, according to Harvard University. Insulating and otherwise weatherizing your home uses less fuel and
saves money and lives.

On December 21st learn how to make the right choice when it comes to personal transportation. Choose an efficient car, and maybe make it run on electricity only. What to choose between diesel/gas/hybrid/plug-in hybrid and battery electric vehicles depending on your own commute and living situation. Advice to reduce your environmental footprint and save money with better driving and smarter transportation. Also some more long term reflections on the evolution of transportation in the District.
