Saturday Green Links – 10/23

Lots of links this week about how to communicate environmental messages to people. Apparently “retrofitting,” “weatherization,” and “climate change” don’t test well. And talking about how much people save money by saving energy doesn’t work as well as talking about how much they lose money if they don’t save energy.

In other news, we were the Boston Globe’s Money Makeover for October! In exchange for the potential public embarrassment, we got some great advice. (Like if you’re worried that you might need the money you’re saving before retirement, invest in a Roth IRA—you can withdraw your own contributions penalty-free at any time.)

As always, send along any interesting green news that you see this week.

Three years from now? Or three years total? Either way, that’s great, but if it’s three years total I’m completely blown away!

Jason and I both grew up in Wellington. Are you from Maine, too?
