Environmentalists with a sense of humor

As the number of green homes in the Charlottesville area continues to creep upward, the folks at Treehugger remind us that one can never set our sights too high.

“LEED has unveiled a new level of certification, Protactinium.

In order to qualify for the standard, building designers must commit to a lifetime of celibacy and staff the building exclusively with doe-eyed orphans from third world countries. The building must be a net CO2 sink, producing more oxygen than it consumes. Any bamboo used in construction must be certified panda-free. In the event that straw bale construction is used, the straw must be free-range, sustainably harvested straw.

Heh.
