    Daley comes across as an interesting guy. Good to see someone putting their money where their mouth is. Amazing when the policeman talks about the drop in sick days since they moved buildings… (18:06)

    I am actually amazed that Chicago has such huge green initiatives. In San Francisco, we definitely prefer “green” buildings but mindset is a very difficult thing to change. One of the problems I see is that many of the professionals in architecture and engineering have to learn all these new sustainable ways of buildings so there is an inherent reluctance. Young people coming out of school though have already learned and incorporated green principles so sometimes they are further ahead in this area… Funny…
