    People have know about the use of color to heat of cool their homes for decades.

    Thing is, most people hate the cold, so roofs an buildings will be dark to lower heating bills.

    there's Two products to build roads with; asphalt and concrete.

    the only way to get concrete roads is to drop the Fed requirement that states accept the lowest bid. But since unions run that...

    I suppose it might help some.

    I'd like to see the numbers, though.

    The claim that it will have the same effect at removing all car from the roads for 50 years seems outlandish.

    I don't think its that outlandish. Think about it. Temps rise in the city because of all the dense dark colors. Black absorbes heat and white reflects it. Although thumb was right about the effects it would have on heating and cooling costs for occupants. A gain possibly if everyone did it but wallets would be lighter as a result.
