Science: David Owen: The City as a Green Pioneer
Picture New York City: its concentration of concrete and high-rises, stifling diesel fumes, horn-blaring traffic jams, and curbside garbage bags. It may sound like an ecological nightmare, but The New Yorker writer David Owen, author of Green Metropolis, says its the greenest community in the country. Per capita, New Yorkers actually consume less oil, water, and electricity; generate a lower rate of greenhouse gases; and have a smaller carbon footprint than other Americans. The key to a city's environmental record, and the lesson for the rest of us, is its density: To Owen, our sustainable future looks less like Thoreau's cabin and more like a populous megacity. Presented as part of the Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store.
