I wonder if this describes you. You want to do your part to fight climate change, you just don't know were to start. You fully understand that your actions today (or lack of actions) are going to have huge negative impacts on your children's quality of life in years to come, and you feel terribly guilty about that.
You're angry at the politicians and business leaders for not doing more, and yet deep down inside, you know that a lot of this is on you.
You are not doing enough either, and it's way past time you started doing your part. But again, What can any one person do?
Well, allow me to offer some clarity.
24% of greenhouse emissions come from the generation of electricity. About 15% more come from the gasoline we put into our cars and 5% more come from the non-electric powering of our homes – oil, natural gas or coal for heat and cooking, gasoline for mowing lawns, etc.
That’s a whopping 44% of emissions we could eliminate if everyone just focused on TWO things:
- Clean up the Generation of Electricity
- Electrify Everything
All the technology already exists. Electric cars, electric induction stoves, electric heat pumps, electric lawnmowers, electric everything. All powered by solar panels on the roof.
This website is dedicated to exploring exactly what that would look like in real life. I'm in the process of transitioning my own home to 100% electric and I want to share with you what I learn from the experience.
Will it cost more, less or about the same as my current fossil fuel-burning lifestyle? Will it improve or lower my quality of life? Will it be an easy transition or a real pain in the neck?
Join me as I find out, learn from my mistakes, and let me guide you on an all-electric journey of your own.
You've got a planet to save and I'm here to help.
