General introduction:This paper is the third in the continuing series of papers on the theme, A FRAMEWORK FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT. The theme has two components. One is on the green buildingmovement and the advantages of green buildings with respect to energy conservation, enhancementof environmental health, utilization of waste, e.g., recycling, and, in the future, bioengineering todevelop micro-organisms that can help clean up the environment. For example, some organism has been bioengineered to break up the molecules of oil spill so that it can be absorbed by the rightcompound and clean up the spill. A new metal-based organism that breathes metal has beendiscovered 2 miles underground in the mine field of South Africa up certain computer pollution. Thispaper and the first paper, BUILDING GREEN FOR SUSTAINABILITY, belong to this component.The other component is concerned with the generation and accumulation of value (wealth) todevelop a particular society, India in this case. The second paper, SHIP BUILDING INDUSTRY ININDIA & KOREA
A CASE STUDY FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT, belongs to the lattercomponent.108 volts per cm according engineer Seike, Jr.. (For more on dark matter see [1, 2, 3, 4, 5])
Thetheme has an underlying perspective: It stresses not only the importance of technology for industrialdevelopment but also gives priority to GUT-technology based on the conversion of dark to visiblematter (GUT is grand unified theory ). Dark matter is not only abundant and inexhaustible andavailable everywhere in the Cosmos and around us but also clean and environment friendly. Just tohave a sense of its abundance, the energy density of dark matter according the physicist De Broglie isI026 per cubic foot or the equivalent of 1018 kg using relativistic conversion or 8.8Introduction With the Industrial revolution of last 200 years, we have taken away much more from our Planetthan in all the history of human race of several thousand years. The global Warming has resulted intoa sick planet, and there are no medical facilities or treatment for curing the illness of the Earth exceptthrough human endeavor.Climate change and its mitigation have become a prime concern for scientists and environmentaliststhe world over, for survival of human race on the Planet Earth. In India, Confederation of IndianIndustries, under the aegis of the Indian Green Building Council, is addressing the climate changeissue through the green building movement. Air conditioning consumes nearly 25% of world energy and a major contribution can be made by thisindustry towards reducing global warming. The world today is talking about moving from Green
Buildings to „Z‟ Buildings i.e Zero Energy Bui
ldings or Carbon Neutral Buildings. Even though Indiahas set the tone for this second green revolution by introduction of Mandatory EIA studies for largeprojects, initiatives by Bureau of Energy Efficiency and introduction of Green Building ratingsystems, however, it is important to involve our entire asset of one billiion people and lead the world.Green concepts and techniques can help to address national issues like handling of consumer waste, water efficiency, reduction in fossil fuel use in commuting, energy efficiency and conserving naturalresources. Most importantly, these concepts can enhance occupant health, happiness and wellbeing.Residential sector is contributing 75-80% of the total real estate The housing requirement up to 2012is estimated at Rs. 500,000 Cr. Green building practices adopted in residential buildings cansubstantially reduce or eliminate negative environmental impacts. As an added benefit, green homesreduce operating costs, enhance marketability in case of residential apartments, and reduce healthproblems.
