A house is a family?s refuge, yet the air in the average American home is up to ten times more polluted than air just outside. This shocking statistic highlights an inescapable truth of modern life: our homes have become unhealthy places! With The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home, readers will uncover the hidden dangers of their house, and learn how to neutralize the toxins, radiation, and chemicals that threaten the average house. The book includes: ? Instant fi x checklists that will immediately make the house a safer place ? Information on applying these principles to cars, workplaces, and even schools ? Foods that fi ght back against cancer and toxin exposure Whether readers make every fi x or just a targeted few, the decisive steps in The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home will result in a safer, more comfortable, and more livable home for readers and their families. AUTHOR: Lisa Stockwell is a writer and editor with a background in healthy and sustainable home design. She was editor-in-chief of Homeowner?s Resource, a San Francisco-based home improvement magazine, and, over six years, steered the magazine?s focus to eco-friendly and healthy living. She has written feature articles on healthy lifestyles and the environment for various organizations and publications. SELLING POINTS: ? Includes home fix prioritization checklists that are ranked on the projected health impact of making the fix, rather than the timeline associated with it. ? Includes activities designed to teach your children about the principles of a healthy home, and what they can do to protect themselves while they are away from the house ? The idea of the ?healthy home? free from toxins and other dangers is rapidly becoming a mainstream phenomenon. In the month of April alone, this idea of the healthy home has been featured on Oprah and CNN ? Everything home and garden titles have sold more than 350,000 copies!
In the summer of 2003, a workshop was held in Portsmouth, NH, to discuss land measurement techniques for the North American Carbon Program. Over 40 sci- tists representing government agencies, academia and nonprofit research organi- tions located in Canada, the US and Mexico participated. During the course of the workshop a number of topics were discussed, with an emphasis on the following: * The need for an intermediate tier of carbon measurements. This level of study would be more extensive than state-level inventories of the US Forest Service Forest Inventory and Analysis Program, but less detailed than intensive ecos- tem studies sites such as those in Long Term Ecological Research network. This tier would ideally provide a basis to link and scale remote sensing measurements and inventory data, and supply data required to parameterize existing models (see Wofsy and Harriss 2002, Denning et al. 2005). * The design criteria that such a network of sites should meet. The network and s- pling design should be standardized, but flexible enough to be applied across North America. The design also needs to be efficient enough to be implemented without the need for large field crews, yet robust enough to provide useful information. Finally, the spatial scale must permit easy linkage to remotely sensed data. * The key variables that should be measured at each site, and the frequency of measurement.
