Everyone in government claims to be going GREEN. YOU bet. Then they waste materials on the fancy outside of the airport terminal that looks like a sewer pipe full of junk. The fabrication of the unnecessary complex shaped exterior was a waste of taxpayer’s money in tight times and an environmental waste of valuable materials that took energy to make and resulted in more CO2 being produced in the process.
