Climate fixes are all aimed at property owners. What about

Part of the July 2022 issue of The Highlight, our home for ambitious stories that explain our world.

Renters are often afterthoughts when we talk about climate solutions.

Buildings in the United States make up 40 percent of the country’s total energy consumption every year, which means making them more climate-friendly would go a long way. When a homeowner — especially one with a single-family home and maybe even a bit of land — decides to reduce their building’s impact on the environment, they have plenty of options. They can install solar panels on their roofs, replace their old HVAC systems with heat pumps, or rip open their walls to better insulate their homes. And they can take advantage of funding programs from the government or their utility companies to help pay for those changes.

Renters, by contrast, can do very little. Most leases tend to prohibit all but

9 tips to make your home a more relaxing space

Decades of environmental psychology research tell us that everything that surrounds us is crucial to our mental health, and nature has a particularly powerful role in making us feel good. Clinical studies suggest that natural light can significantly improve health outcomes for patients with depression and agitation. Likewise, cluttered spaces spike cortisol levels in the body resulting in stress and depression, but also make us more prone to making mistakes and giving in to our impulses. A 1984 study published in Science found that surgery patients recovered better in rooms with a view of trees rather than a brick wall. 

This all may seem obvious, but it’s easy to forget. Fields like architecture and design, whose main goal is to create pleasant and functional spaces for their inhabitants, haven’t always fully embraced these principles. 

There are, in fact, several easy and right-before-your-nose tweaks you can do to make your home

Home linked to founding family of Monroe listed on National

A Queen Anne home infused with Eastlake-style architecture once served as the residence to the great-grandson of a founder of Monroe. 

The Roland M. Filhiol House, located at 111 Stone Ave., Monroe, served as the residence of the great-grandson of Don Juan Filhiol, commander of the soldiers who built Fort Miro and thus founded the City of Monroe.  

Fort Miro was a Spanish outpost during the late 18th century that proceeded the City of Monroe. Don Juan Filhiol, an officer at the well-established Opelousas post, was selected by Louisiana’s Spanish Governor, Esteban Rodriguez Miro, to found and command a new post in the remote Ouachita District, in what is today part of northeast Louisiana.

The outpost that sprang up around that fort, which was founded in 1791, was renamed Monroe in 1820 to commemorate the first arrival of the steamboat James Monroe.

Filhiol was charged with grouping the scattered inhabitants
