As a land specialist here in the Greater Asheville, N.C. area, I think about things like the quality of air and water and how that can impact our clients.
(Carolina Blue sky and mountains)
I think about the troposphere and stratosphere, and how each affects the quality of life on Earth differently.
As a former schoolteacher, I remember emphasizing to my students the importance of learning about such things. Maybe you remember learning that the troposphere begins at the Earth's surface and extends for 6-10 miles.
It absolutely and directly affects the health of the people, animals, and plants living on the Earth.The stratosphere, which extends to 30-34 miles above the Earth's surface, preserves the Earth's climate and protects the Earth from the sun's radiation. But we have a challenge. And it's mostly related to human beings.
Carolina blue skies or not, ozone formed in the troposphereby chemical reactions between volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and nitrogen oxides (NOX) on sunny days, and that industrial facility down the road, and that coal-fired power plant over the hill.... emit VOCs and NOX. It's a challenge. Even, gas-powered yard tools, boats, cars we appreciate so much can be a problem. If you look at it as an opportunity to turn on the valve to your creative juices, you could get inspired by the challenge to remedy the problem.
As real estate professionals,we are invested in quality of life issues for our clients.
