Traditional Asphalt roofing has served the roofing consumer well for more than 150 years.  However, asphalt roofs are not environmentally friendly.  Asphalt attracts heat with its dark color and holds the heat due to its molecular structure.  Infrared photography of urban areas where roofing density is high shows the heat buildup.  This phenomenon, called the Urban Heat Island Effect, can seriously impact local air quality.
"Smog is the result of chemical reactions in the air, and higher temperatures mean faster chemistry...  Cooling Los Angeles by 4 degrees would have the same magnitude effect [on smog] as turning all of the on-road vehicles into electric cars."
