Many of us read about climate change but spend very little time thinking about what it means for us and our families.

One of the most important considerations will be the amount of time that we spend indoors and the quality of that environment.

Research has shown a number of issues regarding building air.  Mould spores and mildew, pests, viruses and bacteria, dampness, particulates, chemical emissions from building materials and temperatures all contribute to poor health and quality of life issues.

Air quality can have a wide range of affects on our health and as such deserves a lot more consideration from us.   The National academies of Science, Institute of medicine has recently produced a report discussing our need to consider this issue more closely.

Definitely worth a read!  It is also worth looking at Kamal Meattles TED talk.
