  • Dr. Saul Griffith energy audit - This is an excellent 30 minute personal energy story from a brilliant and inspired scientist. Inventor, engineer and MacArthur Genius Grant-winner, Saul Griffith thought he was an eco-prude until he audited his total power consumption and learned he burns three times the energy as the average European. So, he developed Wattzon.com, a free, online tool we can use to gauge our energy footprints and learn how to reduce our roles in climate change.
