Peter Calthorpe: Urbanism & Climate Change
Relentless growth has led us to a point of reckoning regarding energy, climate change, and the way we shape our communities, says sustainability expert Peter Calthorpeand declaring, "Cities are green" is not enough. Calthorpe, author of Urbanism in the Age of Climate Change, argues that regionally scaled, sustainable urbanism better addresses climate change, and along with green technology, can achieve not only needed reductions in carbon emissions but other critical economic and lifestyle benefits as well.
