Sustainable Rebuilding, FEMA-Style

We had a power outage this morning, so I've just got a minute to mention a great find by Jamais at WorldChanging: FEMA's Rebuilding for a More Sustainable Future -- An Operational Framework. Interestingly, this document is nearly five years old, meaning that considerations of how to rebuild more sustainably aren't just idealistic notions pushed by those of us in the blogosphere -- FEMA's had this on it's radar since the last administration (I have few doubts, though, that it hasn't received much attention since then...). I'll have to take a closer look, but I take Jamais at his word that this is a "treasure trove..." Maybe Eco New Orleans isn't just an ideal...
