In June, 2012 Jeff Deyette discussed Cooler Smarter, the new book from the Union of Concerned Scientists that explains practical and simple things we can all do to reduce our energy consumption at home, on the road and in our tech habits. He showed how individual carbon economies make a very significant contribution to energy savings: modest changes can result in a whopping 20 percent reduction of our personal energy use. He also provided emphatic evidence for climate warming.
Jeff Deyette is Senior Energy Analyst and Assistant Director of Energy Research & Analysis at the Union of Concerned Scientists in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His expertise is in the areas of renewable forms of energy and in resource and environmental management, and he is a co-author of the 2012 book, Cooler Smarter: Practical Steps for Low-Carbon Living (with Seth Shulman and Brenda Ekwurzel).
