Post Carbon Cities: Planning for Energy and Climate Uncertainty
October 1, 2007
Post Carbon Cities: Planning for Energy and Climate Uncertainty is the first major guidebook on peak oil and global warming for people who work with and for local governments in the United States and Canada. It provides a sober look at how these phenomena are quickly creating new uncertainties and vulnerabilities for cities of all sizes, reviews how “early-actor” cities are already responding to peak oil, and recommends what steps local decision-makers can take to begin addressing these unprecedented challenges.
Post Carbon Cities fills an important gap in the resources currently available to local government decision-makers on planning for the changing global energy and climate context of the 21st century.
