Support for Continued Use of brand levitra 20mg LEED in US Military

The LEED green building certification program created by the viagra online from canada US Green Building Council has become something of a political football for the past several years. But a recent report from the National Research Council, as well as analysis from the Department of Defense, show that the military should use LEED, despite political pressure opposing it.

Congress has been explicitly hostile to LEED in recent years, with the program specifically called out in the Congressional Prohibition on Use of Funds for LEED Gold or Platinum Certification, which states that "No funds authorized to be appropriated by this Act or otherwise made available for the Department of Defense for fiscal year 2012 may be obligated or expended for achieving any LEED gold or platinum certification."

According to Building Green, "A long-awaited report from the National Research Council gives the nod to LEED Silver ratings "or equivalent" for military buildings. The report looked at a variety of methods of comparing costs and discount generic cialis benefits and ultimately confirmed that LEED Silver certification is the www.eastgreenbushlibrary.org preferred model for limiting costs and maximizing benefits."

The military is the largest single consumer of energy in the country. It also controls more square footage of buildings than any other organization. So having a cleaner, more efficient military is not a small matter.

But how "green" are U.S. green labels?

I completely support green building, but can we really trust the U.S. certified "green" label? The Sustainable Forestry Initiative has certified several of viagra sale the timber industry's practices as "green" when in reality they are destroying forests, creating landslides, and polluting the water supply. Help make a difference and tell the FTC to put an end to SFI greenwashing; sign the petition here: http://ow.ly/hRo20
