What People Are Saying (click for complete list)
“Those things we choose to do, particularly those long-term in nature, are motivated by our vision of the future. This has been the case for my participation in the Thousand Home Challenge to bring about my deep energy reduction project.
My actions are in response to my vision of a future of fossil fuel depletion and an increasing accumulation of the consequences of their use. It is my hope that my actions and what I have learned from them will inform and motivate others to engage in a deep energy reduction project.
E. F. Schumacher said, “Perhaps we cannot raise the winds. But each of us can put up the sail, so that when the wind comes we can catch it.” Let us set our sails to capture the shifting winds of the future.”
