The Dome - less green than it was

When the public, and presumably local authorities, the media, and that, are sold the idea of a new development, we tend to get fobbed off with benefits that the buidling will bring, and lately, green initiatives that make the development more attractive.


The Millenium Dome - as was - "used rainwater - grey water - to flush toilets and for cooling. Reedbeds outside cleaned the water before its reuse".


Apparently - according to a mailing from  they've now gone. "Rain now runs to profligate waste. Reedbeds neglected and sure to go. Other energy saving systems ncluding local power generation have gone too. Why I asked?"


Too expensive - was the answer.
