Today, at the Seacoast Media Group's Presidential Forum, Hillary Clinton purposed a "Green Building Fund." The fund's aim is to make public buildings more energy efficient. The new program would cost $1 billion annually and be distributed to states through grants or low-interest loans. At the event, Hillary said that "Energy efficiency is the cheapest, cleanest, fastest technology we have to cut energy use and reduce emissions. We'll invest $1 billion annually to help states improve energy efficiency in public buildings, cut pollution, combat climate change, and create 50,000 'green collar' jobs. If we do this right, it can be a win, win for our economy and our environment."

I am glad that the right people are finally getting on board, one thing that is always left out is PESTICIDE usage in new construction and in existing structures.

Take a look at an Innovative Company in Texas; they are supplying the product and the installation of a safe, EPA registered, and long-lasting pesticide that is Environmentally Friendly! Review their web site, www.bugging-out.com. Company name is DiaCore DE.

Their concept goes hand in hand with Energy Star and the Green Building LEED philosophies.
