Energy Efficiency is Great News for Earth DayWashington, DC — Happy Earth Day! To celebrate, we hope you consider taking a step to save energy such as replacing an old incandescent light bulb with an energy-efficient LED or scheduling an energy audit. These simple steps add up. In fact, many people don’t realize that energy efficiency can single-handedly cut about half — half — of the carbon emissions needed to meet our climate goals. Plus, you’ll save money and, with reduced pollution, breathe easier.    So today, we’re sharing not only an interview with Denis Hayes, a founding organizer of the Earth Day movement in 1970, but also a new four-part video series on how we can all Live Well with Energy Efficiency.
