To address climate change, we Americans must increase our energy efficiency, and put in place the public policies that make this possible. Three guests explore this topic – Erin Noble from the MO Coalition for the Environment, Dan Andrews from Sheetmetal Workers #36, and Jeff Schneider from Missouri Renewable Energy.
Energy Efficiency provides 3 key benefits – cleaner air, more jobs, and lower utility bills. Missouri currently ranks 41st out of 50 states in the energy efficiency of our buildings. We can do better than that, and the public is on our side. Missouri voters proved our support for progressive energy policy by passing Proposition C in November 2008 to mandate increased use of renewable energy sources.
