Protecting Our Planet Now for a Better Future

Have you thought about ways you can save energy during these hot summer months?  Have you thought about how much climate affects our way of life, and what’s on the horizon?  Chief Sustainability Officer Lucia Athens and KXAN Meteorologist David Yeomans stopped by to sort out what we can expect, and what we can do. The most important thing is for people to understand that Austin’s quality of life, both today and for years to come, depends on each of us doing our part. The Office of Sustainability has lots of tips and resources to help people take action and learn about climate change. The Office of Sustainability can also connect people with city programs, incentives and rebates that are available. Everyone has it in their power to make a real difference. Visit to learn more.
