  1. I agree on all aspects – applaud the gathering for reworking statements and plans, lose sleep over the effects of sea level rise on valuable sites of all kinds, and am trying to figure out how to help with the carbon footprint measurement/recording requirement.

    I have hopes that the instruments from Energy Star's Portfolio Manager to Carbon-labeling on products will become so commonplaces as to make this an easy compliance project.

    To help us get started, everyone should please consider using Portfolio Manager as an easy way to record energy use and identify carbon footprints from measurable energy use. The bonus is that pretty soon – with enough of us contributing – we will have enough data to convince EPA to create a museums category that gives us all a free tool for comparing energy use across the field.
