LEED just more sprawl promotion

As Important As It Is, LEED Can Be So Embarrassing - Housing - The Atlantic Cities: "Contrary to myth, the environmental performance of a building is not determined just by what happens inside the building.  Research shows, for example, that Americans generally consume more energy – and emit more carbon dioxide – getting to and from a typical building than does the building itself.  Research also shows that location and neighborhood factors can create a dramatic difference in how much energy is consumed and emissions are generated in the getting to and fro. "
