For those who missed it, here’s last week’s All Thing’s Considered, which took a close look at the Green Building movement in the States. Among the aspects of the industry investigated was LEED certification, a driving force in the popularity of green building. NPR asks, “Is it worth the extra investment?”

It’s interesting to note that despite the struggling real estate market, green building “accounts for one third of new construction in the U.S.”

Take a listen to the episode and weigh in: where do you see green building going in the next decade?
