Deux Canadiens vivant avec un handicap demandent au futur premier ministre de l'aide pour vivre, pas de suicide assisté

Lisa veut de l’aide pour vivre, pas de suicide assisté.

Le récent jugement de la Cour supérieure du Québec permettent aux personnes handicapées avec de nombreuses années à vivre de mettre fin prématurément à leur vie

Nos gouvernements s’intéressent plus à une législation faisant la promotion de la mort qu’à la mise en place de meilleurs soins de santé et d'une aide pour vivre pour tous.”

— Dr Paul Saba

MONTRéAL, QUéBEC, CANADA, September 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Deux citoyens canadiens vivant avec un handicap font appel au futur Premier ministre du Canada pendant la période électorale en cours pour faire appel du récent jugement de la Cour supérieure du Québec permettant aux personnes handicapées qui ont de nombreuses années à vivre de mettre fin prématurément à leur vie. Ce jugement met en lumière l'expansion dangereuse de l'euthanasie et du suicide assisté qui a déjà tué presque 7 000 Canadiens entre 2016 et 2019.

Lisa D'Amico est née avec la paralysie cérébrale. Maintenant dans la cinquantaine, elle est présidente du Fonds d'aide aux victimes d'erreurs médicales (FAVEM) qui défend les droits des personnes handicapées.

Elle vit dans une extrême pauvreté avec un revenu annuel d’environ 12 000 $ (CAD) provenant du programme de la solidarité sociale. Souvent, elle ne peut se permettre plus d’un repas par jour. Elle ne peut pas non plus se permettre un traitement physique et aquatique qui l’aiderait à améliorer sa condition physique. De plus, pour améliorer sa qualité de vie, elle est incapable d’augmenter adéquatement son revenu par un travail à temps partiel dont le maximum est fixé à 2400 $ (CAD) ou d'accepter des dons ($200 CAD), annuellement. Elle n’est même pas autorisée à accepter un billet d’avion pour se rendre dans le Sud en hiver, même si elle a une occasion de voyager. Le programme de solidarité sociale lui interdit de quitter la province pour plus de sept jours consécutifs pour voyager au Canada ou à l'étranger, et ce, même en hiver.

Lisa D'Amico rapporte que sa situation économique et sociale lui crée une détresse extrême qui la pousse vers le précipice de l'euthanasie.

Jonathan Marchand est Président du Coop ASSIST (Coopérative québécoise pour la vie autonome). Dans la quarantaine, il est atteint d'une forme de dystrophie musculaire depuis l'âge de 15 ans. Suite à une pneumonie grave, il s’est retrouvé aux soins intensifs avec une trachéotomie d’urgence pour l'aider à respirer à l'aide d'un respirateur artificiel. Auparavant, il travaillait comme ingénieur réseau principal en informatique. Il a travaillé longtemps au Québec et outre-mer en Australie.

Jonathan est maintenant en situation de dépendance vitale pour respirer et a besoin d’assistance médicale. Il est contraint de vivre dans un CHSLD (Résidence des aînés) contre son gré depuis 2012. Près de 70 % des personnes handicapées qui ont besoin d'assistance comme Jonathan vivent en institution au Québec, soit 15 000 personnes, à cause du manque de services de soutien adéquats dans la communauté. Au Canada, ceci correspond à 60 000 personnes.

Selon Jonathan, plusieurs médecins lui ont offert l'euthanasie pour mettre fin à ses jours, y référant comme des « soins de confort ».

« Parce qu’il n’existe pas de service de soutien pour vivre en dehors des centres hospitaliers pour des gens avec sa condition au Québec, je dois choisir entre la mort ou vivre dans un hôpital ou un CHSLD le restant de mes jours » affirme Jonathan.

Selon Jonathan, cette situation existe malgré le fait que les gouvernements peuvent économiser des millions de dollars en favorisant une autonomisation des personnes handicapées plutôt que de les garder en institution (chiffres à l'appui.)

« Jamais on ne m’a offert la possibilité de continuer ma vie à domicile avec l’assistance dont j’ai besoin. En institution, tu perds le contrôle sur ta vie. »

Je n’ai jamais demandé de l’aide pour mourir, j'allais de mieux en mieux.

« On est prêt à m’aider à me suicider, mais pas à me fournir l’assistance pour vivre. Ce n’est pas un vrai choix. »

Malgré ça, Jonathan refusait d'abandonner sa vie, sa conjointe, sa famille et ses amis.

Selon Lisa et Jonathan, comment peut-on parler d’aide médicale à mourir pour les personnes handicapées quand on n’a même pas l’aide pour vivre.

Ce qu’ils demandent ce n’est pas l’aide médicale à mourir, mais plutôt c’est le soutien nécessaire pour vivre dans la communauté pour contribuer à la société.

En définitive, le Dr Paul Saba, un des principaux défenseurs du droit de vivre des patients au Canada, affirme que les lois canadiennes sur l'euthanasie et le suicide assisté ont créé une porte ouverte pour des abus et des dégâts pour tous les Canadiens, qui un jour vivront les défis de la santé qui requièrent de l’assistance en matière de santé et de vie. « Nos gouvernements, tant à l’échelle canadienne qu’à l’échelle provinciale, s’intéressent plus à une législation faisant la promotion de la mort qu’à la mise en place de meilleurs soins de santé et d'une aide pour vivre pour tous les citoyens. C'est extrêmement injuste. »

The Church of Scientology joined religious groups from across the city to march to raise awareness of the state of religious freedom in the world today.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Youth for Human Rights of California and volunteers from the Church of Scientology Los Angeles joined human rights and religious groups from across the Southland at the Islamic Center of Southern California for the annual Interfaith Solidarity March of Peace and Justice.

The march, organized by the Los Angeles-based Institute for Religious Tolerance (IRTPJ), is part of an international movement. Religious tolerance advocates participated this year in 16 U.S. cities and five other countries including Israel, where advocates marched in Tel Aviv and Bethlehem.

“This is the largest coalition of interfaith marches in the world,” said program organizer, IRTPJ Founder and President Dr. L. Arik Greenberg.

The purpose of the march is to raise awareness of the freedom of religion or belief—the right of people to choose to practice any religion without fear of reprisal, discrimination or abuse. All religions are entitled to equal justice and protection under the law.

The urgency of protecting this right was highlighted recently by Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback, who said, “80 percent of people live in places where religious freedom is under attack.” Brownback also emphasized the importance of the “grassroots movement for religious freedom,” that he sees as “beginning to take hold around the world.”

Contributing to that grassroots movement was the IRTPJ march that began in the Wilshire district at the Islamic Center of Southern California, with stops for speeches and presentations at the Founders Church of Religious Science and Immanuel Presbyterian Church.

For the Church of Scientology Los Angeles, this was the final event of a five-part series of activities in support of interfaith understanding and tolerance. For the past four weeks, the Church hosted its fourth annual series of interfaith forums to bridge differences, dispel misconceptions and promote tolerance.

Los Angeles is a cultural tapestry whose residents practice more than 100 religions or denominations, hail from some 100 countries and speak twice as many languages. The Church of Scientology Los Angeles celebrates the ethnic diversity of the city with programs that promote communication and understanding among all who call Los Angeles home.

SROCC AUTHORS AND ICELAND PM DISCUSS CLIMATE REPORT

IPCC Report Panelists

Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, IPCC Author and Albert G. Milbank Professor of Geosciences and International Affairs at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School

No Silver Lining Without Dramatic Changes in Policy on a Global Scale

You can hear movements within receding glaciers when you stand on them, and these desperate murmurings should not be witnessed idly. Nature is giving us a very clear message.”

— Rt. Hon. Katrín Jakobsdótti, Prime Minister of Iceland

NEW YORK, NY, USA, September 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (“IPCC”) Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (“the report”) made international headlines when it was released Wednesday at 5 am EST. The report reveals the extent to which climate change has already affected the world’s oceans and the cryosphere, which is defined in the report as “the components of the Earth System at and below the land and ocean surface that are frozen, including snow cover, glaciers, ice sheet, ice shelves, icebergs, sea ice, lake ice, river ice, permafrost, and seasonally frozen ground.” The report also provided myriad projections that reveal the probable effects on the oceans and the cryosphere if the world’s nations either fail to or fulfill their duties as established by the 2016 Paris Climate Agreement—namely, to keep the average global temperature increase to well below 2 ̊C above pre-industrial levels.

The report is clear: Failure to meet the bar set by the Paris Agreements will be catastrophic for humanity, as well as species that lack the ability to quickly adapt to dramatic changes in their ecosystem.

To better understand the report, three of its authors—Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, Dr. Ben Orlove, and Dr. Robert DeConto—as well as two additional scientists, Dr. R. Max Holmes and Dr. Jennifer Francis, to speak before an audience at The Explorers Club on Wednesday evening. Following presentations by Drs. Oppenheimer, Orlove, DeConto, and Holmes, Dr. Francis joined the other four scientists on stage for a panel discussion that was moderated by host Dr. Philip Duffy, the Director of the Woods Hole Research Center and a former White House senior advisor on climate and science in the Obama administration. The event was part of The Explorers Club’s week of programming based around Climate Week.

The evening’s event began with opening statements from the Rt. Hon. Katrín Jakobsdótti, the Prime Minister of Iceland, who spoke passionately about not only the report, but some of the more salient effects of climate change, particularly how glaciers are disappearing from Iceland. She also spoke about climate change’s effects of the ocean waters surrounding her homeland. “The impact on the ocean is less visible, but no less profound,” she said, before relaying reports from several Icelandic fisherman, who claim to be seeing new species of fish that have migrated north because of warming waters. In her closing statements, she noted that you can hear movements within receding glaciers when you stand on them, and that these desperate murmurings should not be witnessed idly. “Nature is giving us a very clear message,” Ms. Jakobsdótti concluded.

Following the opening statement by Ms. Jakobsdótti, Monica Dean, a Senior Associate with the United Nations Foundation who works on Energy, Climate, and the Environment, provided the audience with some preliminary information about the immense scope of the research required to produce the report, describing it as “the most ambitious report cycle the IPCC has ever undertaken its 30-year history.” To draft the report, Ms. Dean said it required 104 authors from 36 countries, who worked for two years and assessed over “6,000 different sources of literature” and reviewed “31,000 government and expert comments.” After completing the report, the authors spent five days with delegates from 195 countries to approve a 42-page summary for policymakers.

The first of the presenters, Dr. Ben Orlove, was one of the lead authors for the report’s section on mountains. He described how mountain glaciers in low- and mid-latitudes of the Earth are shrinking due to warmer air temperatures. Dr. Orlove also detailed how these glaciers and the usual runoff they produce from seasonal thawing contribute to rivers that are then used as a water source for peoples living in high altitudes. Increased runoffs due to warming temperatures, however, can lead to damaging floods and landslides. Should the process of deglaciation progress more rapidly, the results will not only be more flooding and more landslides, but the eventual disappearance of the glaciers. This will devastate communities in proximity to these rivers by severely restricting their water sources. Warming temperatures may also mean less snow in mountain regions, further denuding water sources during the spring thaw and threatening local economies, especially if they are based on agriculture or tourism.

Dr. Orlove added that the disappearance of glaciers has altered the topography of mountainous regions, thereby making some areas impossible to traverse. This can have a cultural—as well as an economic and environmental—impact. Many UNESCO World Heritage Sites and mountains that are sacred to mountain cultures may be damaged or become inaccessible. France’s Mount Blanc, for example, may cease to be white.

The next presenter, Dr. Rob DeConto, was one of the lead authors for the report’s section on polar regions. Dr. DeConto presented a sobering look into how climate change is affecting glaciers in the Earth’s polar regions. He focused most of his attention on a series of graphs included in the report (see page 6 of the summary) that paint a picture of two vastly different scenarios.

In one, we continue on our current trajectory. If we follow this path, changes will become more pronounced in the future as the forces contributing to climate change compound and the effects (temperatures, sea acidification, ocean heat waves, etc.) become exponential in nature. Dr. DeConto, an expert on ice sheet dynamics, also noted that sea level rise could exceed previous projections because of changing dynamics within the Antarctic ice sheet system. Scientists did not fully understand the dynamics of this system until relatively recently. However, Dr. DeConto said the report shows that “Antarctica has the potential to contribute much more to sea level than we were thinking just five years ago.” Particularly after 2100, this could mean several meters in sea level rise. This will have a tremendous impact on existing coastal communities, especially small island nations.

The other path, which is more likely if we comply with the conditions of the Paris Agreement, shows these negative trends slowing or stopping entirely. In attempting to strike an optimistic tone, Dr. DeConto concluded, saying, “Even though there is going to be an ongoing increase in sea levels…you don’t turn the ice sheets around in decades or even centuries, but you can see it’s a much, much rosier picture with perhaps less than a meter of sea level rise even centuries out into the future, and that’s something that I think we can all probably deal with and tolerate.”

Dr. Michael Oppenheimer, the next presenter, was one of the lead authors for the report’s section on sea level rise. Dr. Oppenheimer opened his remarks with a call for hope, but tempered this by admitting that his initial response to the findings was, “There’s a lot for us to do.” This especially pertains to adaptions and emissions reductions that can mitigate the effects and acceleration of sea level rise. Unfortunately, he noted that, “We’ve fallen further and further behind.”

Dr. Oppenheimer focused on a future in which sea levels continue to rise unabated. In this scenario, storm surges “will be riding on top of a higher sea level, so…the storm surge goes further inland.” Consequently, flooding in coastal areas becomes more common and so-called 100-year weather events become relatively common occurrences. By 2050, in many places around the world (including the East Coast of the United States), these storms may become annual events. Without adaptations and attempts to curb emissions, many coastal areas and small island nations will cease to be inhabitable without tremendous amounts of capital to either rebuild structures to accommodate frequent flooding or create barrier systems that keep sea water out.

The final presenter, Dr. Holmes, is a Senior Scientist and Deputy Director at the Woods Hole Research Center. Dr. Holmes spoke about the section of the report that focused on permafrost. “Permafrost is frozen ground,” he said. “It’s technically defined as ground that’s at or below the freezing point of water for two or more years consecutively, but in practice it’s ground that’s been frozen for hundreds or thousands or tens of thousands of years.” Permafrost can be found underneath approximately 25 percent of the land area in the northern hemisphere.

Dr. Holmes said that as much as 70 percent of the near-surface permafrost in this region may be lost by 2100 due to rising air temperatures. On top of potentially damaging animals and people who rely on ecosystems underlaid by permafrost, thawing permafrost may release a great deal of carbon into the atmosphere, thereby contributing even more to climate change. To put into context just how much carbon is locked in the artic, Dr. Holmes explained that there are currently 850 billion tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere; that there is approximately 500 billion tons of carbon stored in the vegetation around the world; and that there is 1,200 billion tons in existing fossil fuel reserves. In permafrost, “the thing that doesn’t get much attention…there is around 1,500 billion tons of carbon,” he said.

As permafrost thaws, bacteria begin to consume the organic matter that both contains the carbon and has been frozen, thereby releasing both CO2 and methane into the atmosphere. By 2100, Dr. Holmes said the report estimates that, in the best-case scenario, this will translate into “tens of billions of tons of carbon released.” If we do not act, he said, “We’re talking something over one hundred billion tons.”

The subsequent discussion began with a remark by Dr. Francis that seemed to capture the mood of the audience: “Thanks everyone for all that terrible news.” She added that, though the report does paint a ominous picture of the future if we fail to act, “One of the things this report does really well, and one of the reasons it’s so important, is because it’s really highlighting the changes that are going in two really important parts of the climate system: the oceans and the polar regions.”

Dr. Francis then emphasized that there is a vicious cycle in these parts of the climate system, wherein phenomena associated with global warming amplify one another. She used the melting of arctic sea ice as an example: “So far, we’ve seen the artic sea ice disappear by 75 percent in only 40 years.” As temperatures warm, more sea ice melts; as more sea ice melts, less solar energy is reflected back into space and is instead absorbed by the ocean; as the ocean absorbs more of the sun’s energy, temperatures warm; and so on, ad infinitum. According to Dr. Francis, this positive feedback loop “is causing the arctic to warm two to three times faster than just about anywhere else on the planet.” Additionally, this contributes to the thawing of permafrost and the melting of glaciers, particularly in Greenland.

Following the discussion, Mr. Julio Cordano, Chile’s Deputy Lead Negotiator for Climate, provided closing remarks. He noted that, while there needs to be more conversations between nations to address climate change, there is also a narrow window of opportunity. In the near future, he hopes that “we will be able to say we have a very substantial alliance of countries that are willing to increase their ambition and hopefully address the enormous amount of work that we need to do.”
This tone of conditional confidence in humanity’s ability to save itself from its own myopia had resonated among all speakers throughout the night. While the report makes clear that the effects of climate change will be severe if humanity does not work to reduce emissions, each of the scientists emphasized that adhering to the goals of the Paris Agreement will lead to significantly less grim results.

Dr. Oppenheimer described himself as an optimist in his opening remarks, adding: “It doesn’t pay to be paralyzed by gloom and doom.”

“We have the tools at our disposal,” he later added.

Meanwhile, Dr. Orlove claimed: “There’s twice as much glacier loss between now and 2100 with high emissions as there is with low emissions.”

Even Dr. DeConto expressed a hopeful tone while pointing to the two potential trajectories for the Earth’s oceans. Highlighting the projection that does not portend imminent doom, he said, “There’s still a lot of good news in this story.”

Dr. Holmes took a bolder approach: “Best case scenario is a hell of a lot better than the worst case scenario.”

More and more volunteers are joining the Hollywood Village team.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Momentum is building for the Hollywood Village campaign to make Hollywood a safer and cleaner place to live and work.

The September 2019 Hollywood Village Cleanup saw 120 volunteers put in 360 volunteer hours, collect up 13 used syringes and 150 bags of trash weighing 3,100 pounds (yes—we weighed it!) for a 100 percent successful morning’s activity to make Hollywood a cleaner, safer place to work and live.

As in so many other cities and neighborhoods, homelessness is a major problem in Hollywood, and one of the basic purposes of Hollywood Village is to help the homeless get back on their feet. This month, volunteers had two reasons to celebrate the momentum the campaign is generating to forward this purpose.

The first has to do with Greg.

Greg was a gang member from the time he was 13. He spent more than half his life in prison. Back out at 60 earlier this year, he’s been living on the streets of Hollywood, trying to get by, recycling bottles and cans he collects and selling soda and water on Hollywood Boulevard.

He connected with Hollywood Village several weeks ago because, although homeless, he always keeps the area around him clean and encourages other homeless people to do so too. He believes setting up a job corps that makes it possible for the homeless to earn a living by cleaning up the city, parks and beaches would go a long way to solving the homeless problem. “There’s a lot of people that want to work,” he says. “You’ve got to give them a chance. You’ve got to open up the door somewhere.”

Then two extraordinary opportunities arose when people in the community learned about Greg through Hollywood Village social media. A business executive decided to offer Greg a job, paying him a working wage for cleaning up the neighborhood. And a halfway house director presented Greg with the key to room of his own. Several local businesses and neighbors chipped in to cover the down payment and provide him new clothes.

Other community members are joining in the Hollywood Village campaign too. This month, an entrepreneur launched “Cash for Trash.” Those living on the streets were invited to help collect trash and bring it to a weigh station in Hollywood where they exchanged their trash for money. Just as Greg predicted, many homeless took part in the project. It was so successful that Cash for Trash will be part of the monthly Hollywood Village Cleanup going forward.

Special thanks go to Hollywood Village partners and supporters, who provide supplies, coffee, breakfast and lunch for the volunteers, and make the monthly cleanup a successful, expanding initiative: Lloyd Princeton at Design Management Company, Al-Wazir Chicken in Hollywood, Snacknation, La Poubelle Bistro in Franklin Village, Renaissance Restaurant, Dre’s BBQ, Kettle Glazed Donuts, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in Hollywood, Tang’s Donuts, Original Tommy’s World Famous Hamburgers, Beacon of Hope Los Angeles, Tailwaggers, Garbograbbers, Home Depot, Southern California NFL Alumni, Shelter 37, Republican National Hispanics of California, L.A. Department of Sanitation, Boy Scouts of America Troop 8, Cub Scouts of America Troop 88, and the LAPD Hollywood Division and The Way to Happiness Foundation.

Hollywood Village is a community coalition of people of all faiths, ideologies, political preferences and backgrounds, working together to make Hollywood beautiful, safe and clean.

Anyone wishing to take part in the next Hollywood Village Cleanup is invited to join the team Saturday, October 19, at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre, 5930 Bronson Avenue at 9 a.m.

–WPDL Celebrates the 70th National Day for China.

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A group of world peace lovers representing World Peace Development League (WPDL) gathered at the UN headquarters to celebrate the 70th National Day for China on September 21st, the International day of Peace established by UN General Assembly in 2001.

This event was organized by Jing Zhao Cesarone, CEO of Global CSR Foundation (GCSRF) and co-founder of WPDL, Sha Zhu, COO of GCSRF and Dr. Linda J. Stillman, Founder and President of Young Global Leadership Foundation. They were attending the UN Climate Action Summit to learn the updates of UN Sustainable Development Goals and to plan the road ahead. The Summit occurred ten days prior to the 70th National Day for China on October 1st.

In 2001, the United Nations General Assembly unanimously adopted resolution 55/282 to establish September 21st as an international day of non-violence and cease-fire. The resolution 55/282 invites all nations and peoples to cease hostilities on this day, and urges all Member States, organizations of the United Nations system, regional and non-governmental organizations and individuals to commemorate, in an appropriate manner, the International Day of Peace, including through education and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United Nations in the establishment of the global ceasefire.

All proceeds will benefit scholarships to help vulnerable children at the 14 Israel Tennis & Education Centers that stretch across Israel from Kiryat Shmona on the Lebanese border in the North to Beer Sheva bordering the Negev Desert in the South.

“For anyone who loves the culture, spirit, sights, sounds and food from Israel, this is a very special treat,” states Wendy Slavin, Chair of this special evening. “We are truly re-creating a Shuk marketplace and are bringing a piece of Israel to NYC – while showcasing the diverse and inclusive environment where all children are equal at the Israel Tennis & Education Centers. These children represent Israel’s future.” Wendy Slavin, Chair, ITEC Night on Jaffa Road

The Israel Tennis & Education Centers (ITEC) was founded in 1976 and over the last 43 years it has grown and evolved into one of the largest social service agencies for children in Israel. ITEC has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of children with the goal of igniting hope and opening pathways to a successful future for them and for Israel, now and for generations to come.

ITEC has created a model of ethnic integration through sports in a safe environment where each and every child is afforded the opportunity to play, dream, learn and make friends within a peaceful community. Many see the centers within their communities as a stable, nurturing “second home” that supports them as they develop into productive, healthy, well-rounded adults, with thousands receiving scholarships to university and employment opportunities, as a result of their participation.

The organization is focused on the core values of education, equality, empowerment and well-being. Through its social impact programs, a wide range of children are served, including youth at risk, immigrants from Ethiopian and Russia and children with special needs, from autism and ADHD to Down Syndrome as well as those with developmental and physical disabilities.

The goal of Israel Tennis & Education Centers is to ensure that every child in Israel is healthy, educated, equal and equipped to pursue their dreams, without religious, economic or social barriers, and has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

MICHAEL INGUI URGES ARCHITECTS TO JOIN PASSIVE HOUSE ACCELERATOR

Baxt Ingui Architects Partner Issues Call to Climate Action

Passive House Accelerator's mission is to bring people together to share projects, collaborate on ideas and promote Passive House as part of the climate change solution and a call to climate action.”

— Michael Inqui, Baxt Ingui and Passive House Accelerator

NEW YORK, NY, USA, September 27, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New York chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIANY) held a panel discussion on historic preservation and carbon reduction yesterday evening at the Center for Architecture in Lower Manhattan. The event was organized by the AIANY Historic Buildings Committee and the AIANY Committee on the Environment. Panelists included Michael Ingui, a Partner at Baxt Ingui Architects P.C.; Jeff Murphy, a Partner at Murphy Burnham & Buttrick; Cory Trembath Rouillard, an Associate Partner at Jan Hird Pokorny Associates; and Paula Zimin, the Director for Sustainable Building Services at Steven Winter Associates. The discussion was moderated by Scott Henson, the Principal for Scott Henson Architect.

The goal of the event was to explore the intersection of sustainability and preservation, as it is often believed that the two are anathema. However, with the passage of the Climate Mobilization Act, owners of older buildings in New York City will need to find a way to comply with stricter efficiency standards or face steep fines.

While it is often believed that such retrofits are either prohibitively expensive or cannot be done without compromising the historical integrity of the structure, this is not the case when owners make improvements that utilize the Passive House methodology. Ingui was ardent about both points in his presentation, showing clear evidence that structures that comply with Passive House standards are indistinguishable from typical homes, even if these homes are designated or protected historic landmarks.

“Many of our projects, particularly in neighborhoods like Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope, are in historic districts,” Ingui said. “Passive House does not necessarily affect the aesthetic of building fenestration or facades. It’s also affordable. True, it increases retrofit costs by somewhere in the ballpark of five percent, but it ends up paying for itself in just a few years through energy savings.”

A home that is built to the Passive House standard is extremely well sealed and well insulated, thereby reducing homeowners’ cooling and heating needs by between 80 percent and 90 percent. Certified Passive House buildings oftentimes only use their heat for a few days in the winter, even in New York City.

Because it is Climate Week and because Passive House has the potential to significantly improve efficiency and reduce building emissions, Ingui asked those in attendance last night to take a pledge to be more supportive of Passive House. One way that architects can do so is to join Passive House Accelerator, a site Ingui launched earlier this year and for which he has written several articles.

“The goal with Passive House Accelerator is to bring people together and to use Passive House as one part of the solution to climate change,” Ingui said. “Passive House Accelerator is a way for architects, designers, and contractors to learn about events, share their projects, and collaborate on ideas that can promote the net zero and Passive House movements. We have the tools at our disposal—it’s time we start using them.”
