Thanks you Dennis  for describing the problems with LEED and the 
problems of being totally Green. There seems to be a lot of hypocrisy 
associated with greenness.  Imagine my surprise when I read, "In 
mid-August, Germany opened a new 2200MW coal-fired power station near 
Cologne, and virtually not a word has been said about it. This dearth 
of reporting is even more surprising when one considers that Germany 
has said building new coal plants is necessary because electricity 
produced by wind and solar has turned out to be unaffordably 
expensive and unreliable."  If you read the rest in this website you 
will learn that Germany is building an additional 23 new coal fired 
power plants.
This is why I commented that, "what we as divers is just a drop in 
the bucket in the grand scheme of things"..But keep trying, Gene
