#1 Anything green is s scam. It's a euphemism for "doesn't work."
And those last few LEED points involve rapidly diminishing returns. They get expensive really fast.

#5 I travelled last week when this hit the dead-tree press. Two full days of front page (and secondary pages) of smashing the LEED certification process as a money-making scam. I was shocked that USAT would print such.....
