December 18, 2009, Newsletter Issue #10: Take To The Trees

Tip of the Week

If you're not sweltering in a heat wave, opt for a small family hotel that doesn't use air conditioning. Even the new CFC-free coolants in modern AC models are a source of greenhouse gases.

Look for establishments shaded by trees, especially on the east side of the land. According to Canopy, an urban forest advocacy group, the evaporation from one tree can produce the cooling effect of ten room size air conditioners; Stone buildings, easy to find in some parts of the world, stay relatively cool if the shades or (even better) shutters are drawn.
