Special Advisor for Green Jobs for the White House Council of Environmental Quality, Van Jones, visited a DC worksite to showcase a green roof that is under construction.  Unlike traditional roofing jobs, there are no toxic adhesives being used.  Instead, dirt is being delivered via buckets on a wire to be used as part of the building’s living roof.

Jones’ trip to the jobsite is designed to help provide us all with a peek at the future of the clean energy economy.
