Here's how much carbon 'green roofs' can scrub

Not only do green roofs look cool (that's where you put grass, moss or whatever on your roof), but every square yard of green roof scrubs about half-a-pound of carbon out of the atmosphere each year. (New Scientist) Doesn't sound like much. But if the entire city of Detroit converted to green roofs, the resulting carbon offset would be equal to pulling 10,000 SUVs and trucks off the road each year.

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
