Keeping It Cool

Congratulations to Tilden Chao and Abigail Glickman of Keep it Cool Tompkins! for their well attended summit on green refrigeration May 23 in Ithaca. Their panel of speakers did a great job covering from the basics of refrigerants in heat pumps and other compressors to the alarming predictions if we don’t get it together to cool our food and our buildings and our cars without further exacerbating climate change and ozone depletion.  Tilden and Abigail won the first Youth Climate Challenge grant from Sustainable Tompkins for their project.
