USA Today has been running a series of articles on "green" technology in construction.

Goes without saying there are strong views/opinions on either side of the spectrum regarding "green" or Leeds, etc..

Recent article details efforts in some school buildings in the Houston Ind. School District.

Green Schools - Maybe not so much

In my experience with indoor air quality investigations the problems are largely centered on poorly maintained and understood systems by those who are responsible for operating them. I also believe that you can have a well designed building that gets all screwed up in the construction process.
