A treat for passers-by at Copley Square yesterday: Carbon Day 2013! Co-sponsored by Boston University Sustainable Neighborhood Lab and the City of Boston Greenovate, Carbon Day is a public exhibition event to promote awareness about carbon and educate the public about steps they can take to reduce their carbon footprint, according to organizer Linda Grosser from Boston University. Pictures available!
Another class assignment, this time a one-minute interview-style video of an expert explaining something that he/she is familiar with. My pick – Dipul Patel of ecoVent. http://vimeo.com/63249753 Smartphones? Smart homes. from XiaoZhi Lim on Vimeo.
Whenever it gets cold outside, my room’s heat just gets magically sucked out through my exterior wall and window. My Indian roommate has it even worse – she has two exterior walls and windows. These are times when we beg our American roommate, who has the interior room with the thermostat, to turn up the heat. Having lived through my first winter in Boston in a leaky apartment, I was very glad to find that someone was working on apartment heating efficiency: Dipul Patel of ecoVent.
