Yesterday, while preparing for my "Green in the Stimulus" talk, I came across something both hilarious and frightening.
StimulusWatch.org has provided an inventory of proposed projects that could benefit from the stimulus. The list was prepared from a list of shovel-ready projects prepared by the U.S. Conference of Mayors . While reviewing the list for "LEED" projects, to my great horror, I made the following discovery:
If an entity is seeking "LEEDS" certification, is the project really "shovel-ready"? And no, that is not a rhetorical question.
