JG Makes Lighter Footstep's 10 Green Blogs List

I just want to kick out a shout to the group over at Lighter Footstep that took time to look at the state of the green blogosphere and come up with a list of good green blogs to read.  With the blogosphere as large as it is, there’s always room for error in generating a list, but I think LF did a nice job.  Feel free to pop over and read about each one.  Importantly, the list goes beyond the big-time green blogs such as Treehugger, EcoGeek, AutoBlogGreen, and Inhabitat.  These are the leaders of green blogging.  Other than JG, I’ve included links to the other nine:

S2: Hypergreen by Jacques Ferrier (+ Podcast)

Recently, Paris-based architect Jacques Ferrier unleashed his "Hypergreen" mixed-use skyscraper concept, which was submitted for a project competition in Paris.  Hypergreen incorporates a curving lattice facade made of ultra-high-performance concrete that acts as the building’s primary structural system.  It has the look of steel, almost resembling some of Foster’s designs such as Hearst Tower or 30 St Mary Axe.  Measuring 246 meters in height, Hypergreen has the following green features:  geothermal heat pumps, photovoltaic panels, integrated wind turbines, earth cooling tubes, vegetated sky lobbies, a roof garden, rainwater recovery system, and flexible and adaptable floor plates.  The exoskeleton reduces the number of columns that make for odd floor plates.
