Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the acclaimed New Yorker writer, a thought-provoking, innovative, and challenging new approach to protecting our environment.

Most Americans think of cities as ecological nightmares-wastelands of concrete, garbage, diesel fumes and traffic jams-but residents of urban cores actually consume less oil, electricity, and water than hybrid- driving Vermonters do, and they have smaller carbon footprints. Essentially, they're forced to. In this remarkable challenge to conventional thinking about the environment, David Owen offers an invaluable environmental template for a global population that is growing as natural resources shrink. Green Metropolis will change the way people think about the environment.

 

Synopsis:

From the acclaimed "New Yorker" writer comes a thought-provoking, innovative, and challenging new approach to protecting our environment. He explains why living smaller, living closer, and driving less are the keys to sustainability.
