Interesting subject. Reminds me of some full page ads I've been seeing lately in Barron's. United Technologies is running these ads with a color sketch of an energy efficient building to highlight all their new energy saving products (elevators, etc.).

The "green building" concept seems like a good idea, we'll see how it works out.

The retrofit of existing buildings is also very interesting. Solar collectors shade the roof of large buildings and reduce the cooling load while at the same time generating heating/cooling power, electricity, and with algae growing solar collectors process waste water into clean water, fertilizer, and biofuels, biogas and biodiesel.

It's a great trend, green conversion. Much cheaper than whole new buildings. I hope this conversion trends takes off with vehicles too.

It's great that many new buildings produce their own renewable energy.This will help for the perserving of our planet and will save a lot electricity.

Justified? Of course they are. What a silly question.
