This blog entry from Green Building Elements came across my inbox from a fellow IIDA employee today, and I have to say I can’t find too much to disagree with in their original post.
A lot of the “green,” or LEED buildings seem to be oxymorons–green parking lot? As the post pointed out, wouldn’t it be preferred for commuters to take the train or another form of mass transit? Green airport terminal? Airplanes emit tons of pollutants into our atmosphere everyday.
I suppose I could also look at it from another perspective, that at least people are trying?
