Green Roads

Green Roads is an idea that occurred to me while travelling on a paved road a couple weekends ago. I thought to myself:

  1. How could we pave that road with matter that produces oxygen?
  2. Or could we pave the road with material that absorbs the exhaust fumes generated by the vehicles travelling on it?
  3. Or could the road generate electricity for the lights that illuminate it as well as the surrounding communities?
When I googled Green Roads I liked the top two hits:

  1. a project in Nepal
  2. a very readable description of permeable pavement

Now, how can we generate interest in this subject among eco-entrepreneurs and scientists (both young and old) everywhere?
