rooftops in chicago

A quote from the mayor of Chicago, Richard Daley.
The more concrete we pour down America, the more deserts we destroy and farmland we destroy, the more global warming we're going to have. If there's more trees, more flowers and more greenery, it helps the environment and attracts nature.
Growing plants on rooftops won't get it done alone, but every bit helps. Good for Chicago. One highrise roof planted with grass and trees in Chicago alone exceeds the effort of the de facto Bush Administration to mitigate climate change.
