- The Peril and Promise of Urban Life in the Age of Climate Change
- By: Ashley Dawson
- Narrated by: L.J. Ganser
- Length: 12 hrs and 20 mins
In Extreme Cities, Ashley Dawson argues that cities are ground zero for climate change, contributing the lion's share of carbon to the atmosphere, while also lying on the frontlines of rising sea levels. Today, the majority of the world's megacities are located in coastal zones, yet few of them are adequately prepared for the floods that will increasingly menace their shores. Instead, most continue to develop luxury waterfront condos for the elite and industrial facilities for corporations. These not only intensify carbon emissions, but also place coastal residents at greater risk.
Good idea and good start but fades quickly
