Not sure where this was previously discussed but found this article highlighting some of the main issues surrounding LEED certification:

http://www.grist.org/news/maindish/2005/10/26/leed/

Two excerpts;

"But, echoing a growing chorus in the green-building community, Schendler and Udall contend that LEED is in crisis. They fault the program's cost, complexity, bureaucratic requirements, and what they characterize as a frequent disconnect between its emphasis on point allocation and actual environmental benefit..."

"Whether the council's efforts to adapt to the market while maintaining and even boosting standards will bring about the transformation sought by critics like Schendler and Udall remains to be seen. The concern for many longtime practitioners of green building is that the skirmishing over acronyms and checklists will distract from the larger battle to make the built environment more sustainable."

I hope it is here to stay and be fortified because ultimately there must a be a beginning, a foundation, to build upon. I think it is a great idea to incorporate these into Code Minimums too...it's the fastest way to go mainstaream and get everyone involved...look at ADA requirements, or NFPA...
