Treehugger tips us off that there's a new green blog/web site in town called Greenopia - the Urban Dweller's Guide to Green Living. Although there's some kind of convoluted sign-up procedure at the homepage, you can skip that and get to the RSS feed here, which might be more useful for those of you who hate signing up for stuff.
Also, the Livable Places' Web site reports that the City of LA is considering making rooftop green spaces a requirement for new City facilities. The rooftop gardens, besides providing fleeting moments of zen for City workers, will also contribute to a reduction of groundwater pollutants. And according to the EPA, just 5 percent more greenspace in the City could reduce summer temperatures by 4 degrees. Someone should get on this right-quick. Those ingenious Chinese are already making their own rain.
