The Empire State Goes Green
What could be a more influential move to further green energy efforts than retrofitting one of the greatest architectural icons, The Empire State Building? The New York Times reports that as part of their already scheduled renovations, the owners of the skyscraper are including eco-friendly, alternative energy resources, hoping to reduce energy consumption 38% by 2013. Hopefully it sets the stage for more buildings to reduce their carbon footprint. C'mon, everybody's doing it.
