Posting this link to an article by Tina Rosenberg on Green Roofs in NYC. This ties into the idea of sustainable cities using urban agriculture, clean energy, etc. Green roofs help reduce energy use by cooling in the hot weather and retaining heat in the cold weather. They also help control storm water runoff. Large amounts of rain can strain water systems in cities. Here is the link: Green Roofs In Big Cities Can Bring Relief From Above
