Global Green's Platinum Certified Building

My friend who wishes to remain anonymous passes this on from Los Angeles:

"At the Global Green event I went to in LA on Saturday, they talked about how their organization built the first energy-efficient homes in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina. It's pretty amazing that with all the other constraints surrounding building a home in a hurricane-ravaged area, that they were still able to get LEED Platinum certification (which is MUCH harder to get than LEED Gold, which is the next level down). Granted when you have Gorbachev as the spearhead of your organization to raise money cost clearly isn't a concern, but it's still a pretty cool idea."

Check it out, pretty neat:
