  1. I wonder how they calculate how much CO2 they've kept out of the environment.

    And since it seems to be a running thread in the whole "build green" frenzy, I also wonder about the price point of an acrylic roof. Cost benefits in the long run aren't necessarily enough to get buy-in in the short term.
