Get Religion on Climate Change with Hoffman Weber Construction

by Hoffman Weber Construction, on June 18, 2015

It’s time for people to ‘get religion’ about climate change and act to reduce carbon emissions that scientists say are causing the earth to warm and sea levels to rise, leading to severe weather events and natural disasters.

The "Ecological Crisis" We Can't Afford to Ignore

Pope Francis declared in his historic Laudato Si' (“Praise Be To You”) Encyclical today that reducing man-made climate change is a moral and ethical imperative.

For the world’s more than 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, the call to be good stewards of creation has pierced through political lines and bridged the divide in personal opinion towards climate change. Earlier this month, hundreds of rabbis inspired by the anticipated encyclical signed a rabbinical letter that reached the same conclusion.

Pope Francis presents the message of Laudato Si not only to the Catholic community, but to "every person living on this planet."

Laudato Si‘ Earth - Time to Control Climate

Effective Feb. 14, 2015, a new Residential Energy Code (for MN) requires new homes to pass blower door tests that certify no more than 3 air exchanges per hour from leaks when pressurized by a special fan installed in an exterior doorway. But thermography and blower testing can be even more valuable in older homes built before today’s tight construction standards.
