!! OMG, could it be this easy?: White Roofs !!

Could the answer to global warming be in the shade of our roofs? THIS ARTICLE claims that painting our roofs white could significantly reduce the temperature of our planet.

This new study says that if the 100 biggest cities painted all their roofs white, and switched their road materials to lighter colors (concrete instead of asphalt) it would reflect enough light and heat back into space to entirely offset the warming of the last few decades.

But what are the global impacts of all those paint fumes, hmmmmm? Wau-wau.

  1. I’ve heard that setting up plants up there makes for an earth-friendlier rooftop… or perhaps making use of solar panels, as I hear is often done in Spain… seems like a better idea than using white paint, albeit quite a bit more involved.
