Edward Norton Pushes Sustainable Building On Capitol Hill
As reported earlier, actor Edward Norton headed to Capitol Hill yesterday afternoon to testify to the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming on sustainable and eco-friendly building. Unfortunately, Norton did not get all Hulk-like and threaten to bash skulls unless the government pushed green building — but he did have ideas on what type of backing would knock us in the right direction. From the SFGate,
“Norton told lawmakers the federal government should start a $5 billion fund to retrofit or construct better public housing that meets new environmental standards. He said low-income communities suffer most from pollution and high energy prices – and would benefit most from a shift to green buildings. ‘We’re determined to include low-income housing in this conversation,’ Norton said.”
