If you're like me, you think about the future all the time. To me that future will be chock full of green buildings that satisfy LEED standards. Even if you don't care about green building for altruistic reasons, this certification is clearly the wave of the future. It's not like the only people who care about living green are a bunch of hippies these days. Everybody is jumping on the green bandwagon.

Architects without this accreditation will be seen as being behind the times, and young builders looking to make a dent in this market would be wise to get this certification as well. It's where the industry is headed; it's where the world is headed when you're talking about the green movement as a whole. I'm sure there will be some bumps along the way, but one day we will live in a world where all building meet LEED specifications.
