The Independent: "Painting roofs white is as green as taking cars off the roads for 50 years"

Link to The Independent

"Painting roofs white and using light-coloured materials to surface roads and pavements would not only make cities cooler in summer, it would save the same amount of carbon as taking all the cars in the world off the roads for 50 years, a study has found.

"One of the simplest, yet most effective, ways of engineering the urban environment to cope with global warming is to increase the reflectivity of the cityscape, so that more of the incoming sunlight is directed back into space, scientists said."
