How do you propose to change this, and what role should Uncle Sam have.

I thought you were looking for views on what we thought about green design. Well, you have mine. Now you want me to solve it? That's for the next generation. I'm old enough to show you the problem. You're young enough to bang your head against the wall for a few years fixing it.

And what role should the govermnent play? I drink bottled spring water packaged by private industry because government water is only fit to bath in and water my lawn. Ya got it?

I guess I should put it another way, could you be convinced to build a house or building with sustainable features, and what would it take to convince you.

General question for all interested

Would you be willing to pay more initailly, if you were shown that you would retrive the cost over time through reduced utility bills and maintenance costs?
Or are you decisions driven by the initial contruction costs?
What do you feel about tax incentives for using techniques and technologies that reduce your energy consumtion and environmental impact?
