How can green buildings make our children live a better life?

    Green buildings can help reduce a climate change factor known as the “urban heat island effect,” which holds that cities tend to be warmer than rural areas, and the bigger the heat the warmer it will be. This city warming creates a heat pocket, and this effects climate change.

    Some building materials have lower albedo, or reflectiveness, and thus absorb more solar radiation, sun light. This contributes to a heat island effect, and is something that can be mitigated by green building.
