TREND:BOOMERANG CHILDREN

  • Even though young adults today may prefer to live independently, they may not be able to afford to do so.

  • Many entry level jobs today offer low wages yet housing costs have soared, which has put independent living out of reach for many young adults.

TREND: BOOMERANG CHILDREN

  • Not only are they leaving home later, they are also more likely to return home - back into the role of a dependent.

  • Currently 40% of young adults BOOMERANG.


Trend automated houses l.jpg

TREND:AUTOMATED HOUSES

  • “Smart House” technology in whole or in part is a trend of the future.

"The warming trend in global-mean surface temperature observations during the past 20 years is undoubtedly real and is substantially greater than the average rate of warming during the twentieth century.”The most important action we can take to slow global warming is:Reduce emissions of heat-trapping gases. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions can be done by: Increasing energy efficiency standards Encouraging the use of renewable energy sources (such as wind and solar power) Protecting and restoring forests, which serve as important storehouses of carbon

Therefore

High Level of Consumption

US:

  • 4.5 billion metric tons of materials consumed yearly.

  • World’s leading producer of garbage and industrial waste.

  • 50 % increase in efficiency to keep pace with population growth.

    • President’s Council on Sustainable Development, 1996

  • U.S. 5% of population - 25% of global energy use.
