Cleveland Museum of Natural History to debut its PNC SmartHome Cleveland on Monday

06/05/11 | Steven Litt, The Plain Dealer

To address global warming, not to mention the rising price of oil, Americans someday may have to give up their gas-guzzling SUVs and energy-gobbling suburban McMansions.But living in a more frugal future need not require donning scratchy red long-johns and subsisting on cold oatmeal.

That’s the core message of the new SmartHome exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, a prototypical house of the future designed to stay comfortable year-round without a furnace, to shave tons of money from energy bills, and to look downright cozy and traditional.
