why is weathering important?

    I’m guessing you mean “weatherization,” since weathering is actually just the slow wearing-away of rocks and other minerals as they are exposed to the earth’s atmosphere, and is not actually that important to living a greener life.  Weatherization is important because it dramatically drops the amount of energy required to heat a home, which saves on fossil fuels.  If a home is not weatherized and the thermostat is set at 60 degrees, it takes a lot more energy to keep the home at 60 degrees if heat is constantly escaping through cracks in doors and windows.  Weatherizing means the house stays warmer and uses less energy.
