Summary

With inefficient transportation systems and poorly designed buildings, many cities-especially in the U.S.-consume enormous quantities of fossil fuels and emit high levels of greenhouse gases. While some cities could be headed for collapse, the authors of this spirited book believe that intelligent planning and visionary leadership can help cities overcome the impending crises of peak oil and climate change. Resilient Cities draws on existing initiatives from around the world to demonstrate the potential for urban resilience and presents practical solutions for our planet's growing cities. Book jacket.
