As Mexico Builds Green Airport of the Future, Age-Old Mistakes Loom - The New York Times
On the flat salt basin that was once the Aztecs’ great Lake Texcoco, Mexico is building its “door to the world,” an enormous airport the government vows will exist in harmony with the environment.

Officials described a terminal design so green that it would be a “global reference” for sustainability, and they pledged to rescue degraded lands surrounding the airport.
