This book is the first to explore the dramatic amplification of
global warming underway in cities and the range of actions that
individuals and governments can undertake to slow the pace of
warming. A core thesis of the book is that the principal strategy
currently advocated to mitigate climate change - the reduction of
greenhouse gases - will not prove sufficient to measurably slow the
rapid pace of warming in urban environments. Brian Stone explains
the science of climate change in terms accessible to the
non-scientist and with compelling anecdotes drawn from history and
current events. The book is an ideal introduction to climate change
and cities for students, policy makers and anyone who wishes to
gain insight into an issue critical to the future of our cities and
the people who live in them.
