More green roofs

Canada is joining Japan in encouraging green roofs in cities and urban areas to help the environment. Incentives also exist in many countries in Europe for greening rooftops, and some cities in the US have also encouraged the idea. I haven't heard anything about it in Australia yet though. Proving this idea is bigger than I originally thought it was, there is a research center at the Pennsylvania State University, and the site greenroofs.com contains a wealth of information, but is mainly focussed on the US. Penn State has a good collection of links many of them in Germany, where the idea originated.
