Reason #29: Green Houses

With everyone bitching about the Solyndra scandal lately, I thought I'd point out a positive solar energy story - the Department of Energy's Solar Decathalon, in which teams of students from around the world compete to develop solar housing designs that are both efficient and affordable (they actually deduct points if the house costs too much).

My favorite is the one that collects all the residents' waste water and uses it to water a garden that pretty much covers the outside of the house.
