Living Lightly: Energy Conservation in Housing.
Bender, Tom
This publication contains a series of papers which promote the concepts of energy conservation and offer safe and convenient ways of handling all aspects of our lives affected by energy without having to depend in any way on fossil fuels or nuclear power. These changes, which can be brought about in homes and in energy flows affected by the individual, can reduce the energy consumption of our society by 90%. Among the topics discussed are: means of minimizing heat loss in houses, cooling, food storage and cooking, water conservation, wastes, home structure and furnishings, lighting, sod roofing, the utilization of wood as a fuel, and Ouroboros (an experimental house designed and constructed by an Environmental Design class at the University of Minnesota).
