  8. -Study: Climate Effects of Painting Roofs White: Against (Gurardian.co.uk)
      " 'Cooling your house with white roofs at the expense of [slightly] warming the planet is not a very desirable trade-off,' Jacobson says. 'There are more effective methods of reducing global warming.' "

      "The study, however, did not account for how white roofs might reduce electricity use for cooling, which could help lower temperatures by reducing emissions from power plants." 09-12

  9. -Study: Climate Effects of Painting Roofs White: For (Independent.co.uk)
      " 'If the building is air-conditioned, it's going to be a lot cooler, it can use 10 or 15 per cent less electricity... you also do something in that you change the albedo of the Earth – you make it more reflective," Professor Chu said. Now scientists, led by Professor Hashem Akberi, of Concordia University in Canada, have studied this in detail and found that it can have a significant impact.' "

      "They estimate that a city or town where the roofs and the pavements and roads have light-coloured surfaces can increase their albedo by about 10 per cent, which globally would provide a CO2 offset of between 130 billion and 150 billion tonnes – the same as taking every car in the world off the road for 50 years." 09-12

      "Obama’s Energy Secretary Steven Chu once pitched painting roofs white as a solution to global warming. Maybe, but new research finds that there are unintended consequences: reduction of rainfall in the Southwest U.S."

      "Researchers from Arizona State University have found that 'warming resulting from megapolitan expansion is seasonally dependent, with greatest warming occurring during summer and least during winter. Among the most practical ways to combat urbanization-induced warming – the painting of buildings’ roofs white – was found to disrupt regional hydroclimate, highlighting the need for evaluation of tradeoffs associated with combating urban heat islands (UHI).'
