Green Technologies That Work and Are Available Today!

Former Vice President Al Gore’s Oscar-winning film “An Inconvenient Truth” may well have launched the green movement that has swept the world. That film captured the imagination of many and since then, going green stories of individuals and organizations from all walks of life have littered the media and news outlets. Advertisements for green products, books on living green, and advisories to increase recycling and conserve energy have grown in number and urgency.

All of this is good, and if you believe Al Gore, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, is needed. This Monday, we take a look at some of the technologies behind the green movement and how they are impacting our lives. We’ll talk about using the sun to heat our water and power our homes, efforts to turn trash into electricity as well as other means of reducing the energy consumption of buildings and improve the quality of our water supply.

Joining us in these discussions will be Stan Sersen, LEED-accredited professional, founder of The Green Building Institute and the EnviroCenter in Jessup, MD, and a nationally-recognized expert in green buildings and green spaces. He has served on numerous sustainability task forces and is a licensed architect.

Dr. Nickolas Themelis, Professor of Chemical Metallurgy and the Director of the Earth Engineering Center at Columbia University will join us to talk about efforts to turn trash into heat energy and electricity. Also joining us are Paul Murphy, a green space enthusiast knowledgeable on trends and innovative approaches to energy conservation. Plus Rick Peters, a principle of Solar Energy Services, Maryland, who will discuss solar power for residential and commercial applications.
