These green roofs aren’t just amazing to look at — they cool the planet, too.

What do you think of these? Is these something people should start doing?

The first step of fighting Climate Warming is to have politicians who really lead and support this fight.

This is a fine idea as long as the building is built to take all the extra weight!

If only the US had a president that believed in climate change.

So glad to see so many great ideas and cities, states, and companies stepping up and being responsible, especially when the federal government has sold us out.

Greenhouse gases and carbon emissions are only a part of humankind's contribution to climate change/global warming. We must find a way to overcome the problem of growing concrete megalopolis around the world. Those miles and miles of concrete, steel, glass, roadways and expansive parking lots are heat factories.

I once stand in a viewing tower with my zoom lens trying to snap the roof of the apartment building i was living in and saw that almost every flat roof looks like this and later learned that it is the case in Switzerland. I always wondered why.

Looks good on paper but how many have never had a roof that didn't develops leaks and need to be replaced in time? And the extra weight on a roof that wasn't designed for it?

Small cost initially, many benefits in the years ahead.

The problem with the green roof legislation is that it can go too far. In Denver they enacted this and now because of the astronomical cost, a grocery store upgrade cannot happen near me. Don't write me because I am a true believer in the environment, but I also want to eat.
