TORONTO the GREEN

An earlier post on this blog deals with Toronto’s massive building boom. More than 150 skyscrapers (buildings over 120 meters high) are at various stages of construction all across our city.

Declining mortality from congenital heart disease in Malta. A teenager who is one of the claimants in the civil action was diagnosed as having a mental condition by Mr Berg during a home visit to his mother. Mother and son have claimed they were prescribed dangerous and inappropriate drugs by Mr Berg, who treated 259 patients during his year's employment at Townsville hospital in 2000. Despite hospital authorities learning that Mr Berg's Russian qualifications were fake in late 2002, his former patients were informed only through the Morris and Davis inquiries that arose out of the Dr Death scandal. The inquiries heard that authorities took the decision not to tell patients about Mr Berg because they feared it could lead to them stopping their medication and counselling or even attempting suicide. The three former patients - one of whom claims she has attempted suicide three times as a result of Mr Berg's treatment and medication - are seeking more than $1 million in damages. Looking at Figures 1, 2, and 3, a crucial observation is that the distinction between pain medication online without prescription different research areas is visible not only in the structure of the maps but also in the colors of the terms. In general, in the right part of each map, in which the more basic and diagnostic research areas are located, there are many yellow, orange, and red terms, which clearly indicates an above-average citation impact. As indicated by the color bar in the lower right in Figures 1, 2, and 3, yellow and orange correspond with a citation impact that is, respectively, about 25% and about 50% above the average of the field. Red corresponds with a citation impact that is 100% or more above average. On the other hand, in the left part of each map, research areas can be found with mainly blue and green terms, implying a below-average citation impact.

This massive growth is particularly evident in the downtown core of the city where our hostel is located. The addition of so many new high-rise structures threatens to increase the “concrete jungle” feel of our city.

The city has wisely enacted a piece of legislation requiring all future high-rise construction projects to be built with “green” rooftops.

They don’t mean green as in coloured green or painted green; but, living green rooftops as in “plants, grass, flowers and trees”.

Toronto’s new legislation requires all residential, commercial and institutional buildings over 2,000 square meters to have between 20 and 60 percent living roofs. This is the first city in North America requiring such a mandate (following the leads of Switzerland and Tokyo).

Chicago actually led the way more than a decade ago (in 2000) when it built a massive (38,800 sq. ft.) “roof garden” on a new 12 story building. The benefits to this type of construction have proven to be far greater than mere ascetics.

The building saves over $5000 on annual utility bills; a 34% reduction in heat-loss in winter; and a massive 84% reduction in heat gain in summer.

Today, Chicago has over 7 million sq. ft. of green rooftops and New York City has followed suit beginning with the Con Edison Learning Center in Queens.

Lower utility bills aren’t the only benefit of planting a living roof. It cools down the city; creates cleaner air and water; provides a peaceful oasis for people, birds and insects in an otherwise polluted, concrete and asphalt-covered environment.

Toronto has been a world leader in big city cleanliness, safety and muli-culturalism. Now we’ve joined the “green revolution” with a vengence!

Look out world! HERE WE COME!
