    And the biggest and cheapest gains can come from squeezing efficiencies out of our current technologies and infrastructure.  The Clinton Climate Initiative is leading a very promising campaign to retrofit buildings for energy efficiency in the world's largest cities, and attracting investors to fund it (for which there are returns).  

    40% of our climate change emissions are related to powering our buildings and homes.  There's a huge amount we can do to reduce that burden.  In fact, just look to California, which has beaten the rest of the country in reducing electricity demand growth through enforcing a stricter energy code the last few decades.

    There's so much untapped potential out there -- we just need to lead our leaders to go there, ASAP!

    Freedom is the freedom to say two plus two make four.  If that is granted, all else follows. -- George Orwell, 1984. Now on Twitter.
