Response from Rick Fedrizzi to the Fourth USA Today Article Attacking Green Buildings
Washington, DC (Dec. 11, 2012) – USA Today has once again written an article attacking green building, deliberately ignoring information we provided and cherry picking data that misleads readers. The story is unbalanced and purposely attempts to impugn LEED despite the fact that it has helped lead quantified best practices in designing, constructing and operating all our buildings, ncluding our nation’s schools.
Rep. Jim DeCesare, Kentucky State Representative
I represent the hardworking people of Warren County, Kentucky, where I’m proud that the schools in my district have literally saved millions of dollars building to LEED standards while also cutting their operations and maintenance costs. I'm not an environmentalist, but as someone who also works in the construction industry, I know firsthand what kind of savings LEED certified buildings bring to owners, both public and private. I’ve seen other school systems and higher education campuses across our state embracing LEED because it is the fiscally smart thing to do for our taxpayers. At the end of the day, green schools are providing healthier learning environments for our children, in buildings that are designed for maximum efficiency.
