Chicago To Buildings: Clean Up Your Act!

New, 4 comments

Chicago plans to join nine other cities in saying "Stop the pollution!" from its single largest offender: tall buildings. The City Energy Project, organized by former New York City Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg, wants tall buildings in America's largest cities to clean up their act. Chicago's buildings account for 71 percent of the city's green house emissions. By making tall buildings more efficient, not only will Chicagoans breathe cleaner air, but the city expects to save $134 million annually. At least New Yorkers and Chicagoans can find one thing they can all agree on: that clean air and efficient buildings are a win win.
