A Different Kind of “Green”

Watchdog Files FOIA Request Over Green Building Program Waste.

I’ve always been skeptical of the whole USGBC LEED “Green” building movement. It just never felt right or “smelled” right to me. I’ve always thought that it was a scam. That opinion got even stronger last year when I read that almost 60% of LEED certified “Green” buildings failed to perform as certified when it came to their sustainable design features and systems.

I am a registered architect and always felt a little out of the architectural main stream for not perusing LEED certification. I have feeling that as the above story begins to shake out, not spending the time and money for LEED certification will start to look like a smart move.
