Through Woolly Pocket’s community outreach discount, Team Detroit was able to bring life back to the tragic destruction of the century-old ‘Forrest Arms’ building in Mid-town Detroit. Team Detroit’s “Green the City” project was a success in creating dramatic hanging gardens by using Woolly Pockets!

    I live in Detroit and even though this might have sounded like a good idea it just turned out to be an eye sore. It was not attractive at all. Now that I see all the hard work that went into it, I am amazed it didn't turn out better. Keep trying. The next project may be a big hit. Great video!

    I do not know if it was thought. They used slander to try and destroy honest people's work just to promote a global carbon tax. It has all come out in the wash now in that community. This is why they hijacked the name to climate change and abandoned the nonsense phrase global warming. They want to make a fresh start with the people that do not know they lost all credibility.
    Things like the glaciers shrinking because of less precipitation is because the planet is cooler and other facepalms.

    At least everyone knows about Gores contribution to thought. More dangerous are the Koch brothers, whose way of influencing the public is so sneaky that few realise they exist. They are the principle source of ideas that conteradict global warming and guess what. They make their money from petrol so have some motive for keeping the world dirty and plenty of money to start lots of advice organisations, in arts, business, science and such that influence many almost impercetiblly. rose macaskie

    Holy crap!
    You still believe the Al Gore lie?
    Look at how polluted your science is. Please turn off the TV while you can still form words.

    Putting plants on houses would be just cute but for the fact that plants absorb carbon from the atmosphere reducing carbon gases that reflect heat escaping from the atmosphere back towards us, stopping it going into outer space and that brick is a heat accumulator and heats up cities causing a rises in use of air conditioning, also leaves are shiny and reflect light back to outer space. Also, in winter they reduce heating costs, they are a win win coverer of buildings. rose macaskie madrid.

    Yeah and how many people understand why mortages were predatory, it seems that so few really understand this that banks and polititians can say, people were asking too much in loans and social security, the crash was the peoples fault. The big job is still to make everyone understand how crazy financiers went, lending to anyone because they sold on the joys of lending, the right to recieve the interest paid on the money borrowed, on the open market, with a middlemans gain. rose macaskie madrid
