Greenhouse Gas Correction
Thank you for the article on Silicon Valley USGBC [July 9 - Eco-friendly council opens local branch]. We hope we can be a resource for people interested improving the built environment since buildings consume more energy than even autos. There is a correction. California generates 14 tons of greenhouse gases per year per person. The 600 lbs and 1100 lbs mentioned in the article refer to the amount of greenhouse gases generated per Megawatt hour of electricity used.
