    Wow, that was a great informational video! I wasn't aware they were that awesome tbh 🙂
    What about snow though? Do green roofs also work on steep surfaces?
    I'd totally love a green roof if I had a house! Why not?! ^^?

    I'm sorry to be trollish but if you ask any structural engineer about this they will tell you how bad of an idea green roofs are. Not only do the buildings have to be built heavy enough to hold up the added weight of the plants and soil, they have to be able to handle when that soil becomes saturated with rain water. That means it takes a lot more resources to build and the added support structure reduces the usability of the building. When the soil is saturated it's ability to insulate drops drastically and it takes a lot more energy to heat/cool the building. And since the soil is relatively shallow it has to be watered to keep the plants hydrated during dry periods when water is scarce. If you want "Green" roofs that actually help the environment campaign for covering them with solar panels, I hear there is a company that had thought putting them on the road was a good idea that should have a lot of extra ones. When politicians back an idea it doesn't mean it's right, it might just be popular. :(?

    Great video! I just subscribed. Also great job France. First nuclear power and then green roofs and solar panels. France seems like the most environmentally friendly country in the world now. I really hope that other countries will do this too.?

    You said that evaporation helps cool the city and I suppose it is because evaporation is endothermic.?
