Historic Homes Are Green

This article explains that historic buildings are very energy-efficient, but they work in different ways than modern buildings.  Those differences cause them to score poorly on tests designed for modern materials and techniques, yielding inaccurate results.  It's worth keeping in mind because there is a resurgence of interest in Earth-friendly building (cob, wattle and daub, straw bale, etc.) these days.
