Many people live in a big city. There are many high rise building create problems such as: global warming, energy wastes, pollution, reduce water supply, and other problem in environment, but number of new high rise building is increasing.
A great example of the initiative Chicago is taking in advancing the development of green roofs is the transformation of a portion of the City Hall’s roof into a green roof. The largest advantage shown by the development of this green roof has been the data collected about its temperatures. There is an occurrence called the urban heat island which is where urban centers have average temperatures of 6 to 10 °F higher than surrounding areas due to the high concentration of dark rooftops and other surface areas. There are other cities in Japan, USA, Indonesia and other city create high building with roof garden on the top of the building. Roof garden also calls as green roof. Roof garden also creates a new beautiful view in our city.
There are many benefits if a building built with a roof garden. Green roof design will improve air and water quality and reduce the urban heat island effect and risk of flooding. Ultimately, benefits seen by the city of Chicago will provide incentive for the rest of the world to become more environmentally progressive. These innovative roofs have proven to be a technology that will move the world in a "greener" direction.
Green roofs also provide another benefit to humans and the environment. Green roofs, and the newly developed green walls, air filter, disposing pollutants and CO2. This helps deal with air pollution. Green roofs are able to do this because plants growing on green roofs absorb pollutants.
You can build your own house with green roof. Why not? Let's make our own house greener to make our world cooler and reduce pollution, so our life will be healthy and happier.
Go green. Are you ready?
