--NPR Discusses "Greening" Your Home

Today on NPR's All Things Considered, techniques to "Green" your home were discussed. The most important tidbit? The fact that the housing market is fairly evenly split between those who want hyper-green homes, and those who want the energy-savings of green home-building, but nothing to do with the politics of "green". This means that data is coming forward to support precisely the supposition forwarded by this blog: people like the benefits of green, but they do not want to be identified with the "treehugging" sub-culture.

Where, then, is the compromise to satisfy the two? New Regionalism supports the construction of traditionally-designed homes that live in harmony with their environment. Such homes garner the benefits of green innovation, but maintain the charm of traditional architecture.

Such is the market for tomorrow.
