Baby Boomers and Eco-friendly housing in Texas Hill Country

As the baby boomers retire to the Texas hill country and the culture of global warming marches on, we will likely see more of this. I don't see any reference to the use of solar power or any alternate fuels. They are collecting rain water and using compressed earth bricks. Big deal! I wonder if anyone has studied weather or not the energy used to produce, heat and cool these homes is less than traditional construction. Probably not.

Is this just window dressing or are they doing it to feel better and fooling themselves. We all can do something to change the mindset in this country about going green. We can play an important role in helping the enrvironment and the world. We must do something now.
It can start with one person at a time, one home at a time.
Solar Energy, the momentum has started
Solar energy is the most abundant natural resource we have, and that technology has been around for awhile, but it wasn't practical from a financial perspective until now. When we can provide the average homeowner with the ability to produce their own electricity and keep the saving instead of paying for Commercials, Stadiums and other corporate greed we are making headway.
There is a solution! I recently learned of a company that has figured out how to get Clean, Safe, Affordable Solar Power to the masses, and they do it without requiring any significant investment on the part of the homeowner. This company is helping homeowners switch to solar the easy way through a rental agreement. The customer gets a worry free solar system custom designed for 100% of their current consumption of electricity & an electric rate that is frozen at or below today's rate for up to 25 years. Let’s do something, we can be part of the solution and not be part of the problem. This program is an easy way that you can have an impact on the environment and our pocket book. http://www.jointhesolution.com/2renu
