Above is a link to a short comment about the troubles of “green” building along side traditional construction materials.

In urban areas, building material is chosen with longevity, strength, and affordability at the highest priority, with environmental impact at a much lower consideration, if at all. So, with the growing recognition of the importance of preserving nature in our cites, the emphasis needs to be placed on making the building materials work with the environment, not the other way around. Since the chemicals being discussed are organically occurring, should we not view them as Mother Earth at work?
