'Green' sprawl is still sprawl

Kaid Benfield:

Even the greenest development in the wrong location will create more environmental problems than it will solve.  Of course, that doesn’t stop developers’ and architects’ green puffery.  Heck, they may even be well-intentioned, trying to do the greenest internal design on a site whose non-green location cannot be overcome.  But trying to green a project doesn’t make wishes come true.
