Climatopolis: How Our Cities Will Thrive in the Hotter Future Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We have released the genie from the bottle: climate change is coming, and theres no stopping it. The question, according to environmental economist Matthew E. Kahn, is not how were going to avoid a hotter future but how were going to adapt to it. In Climatopolis, Kahn argues that cities and regions will adapt to rising temperatures over time, slowly transforming our everyday lives as we change our behaviors and our surroundings. Taking the reader on a tour of the worlds cities— from New York to Beijing to Mumbai—Kahns clear-eyed, engaging, and optimistic message presents a positive yet realistic picture of what our urban future will look like.

Synopsis:

One of the worlds leading urban and environmental economists tells us what our lives will be like when climate change arrives
