Natural Gas Effects On Human Health

Dr. Brita Lundberg will link for us health risks and natural gas.   

While portrayed as a “clean” fuel, the CO2 emissions of natural gas are compounded by the much greater methane gas footprint, which is greater than that of coal when the full impact of methane emissions due to gas leaks, intentional releases of gas, and burning at power plants is taken into account.

Architects and developers are in key positions to avoid using gas when electricity sourced from renewables can be incorporated into buildings today. As electricity from renewables become ever more competitive with fossil fuels, the entire building industry can start today to help society reduce greenhouse gas emissions and thereby decrease the rate of global warming and climate change.

This event is co-sponsored by the BSA-COTE.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LU/HSWs are available.
