Extreme Cities: The Peril and Promise of Urban Life in the Age of Climate Change
Extreme Cities: The Peril and Promise of Urban Life in the Age of Climate Change3.83 6 5 Author: Ashley Dawson Narrator: L.J. Ganser
In Extreme Cities, Dawson offers an alarming portrait of the future of our cities, describing the efforts of Staten Island, New York, and Shishmareff, Alaska residents to relocate; Holland's models for defending against the seas; and the development of New York City before and after Hurricane Sandy. Our best hope lies not with fortified sea walls, he argues. Rather, it lies with urban movements already fighting to remake our cities in a more just and equitable way.
As much a harrowing study as a call to arms, Extreme Cities is a must-listen for anyone concerned with the threat of global warming, and of the cities of the world.
