1.28.15
Source: Climate Central, 1/15/15
Summary: Cities -- the best of which are bastions of transit networks, bike paths, compact apartments and chirpy baristas -- are growing faster than litters of sewer rats, exacerbating their already-high hungers for energy. The trend is so steep that a new analysis projects that urban centers will be burning through three times more energy in the year 2050 than was the case in 2005. But what sounds like a threat could also be viewed as an opportunity. The new study, by five European and American researchers and published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, pinpoints staggering potential climate benefits of smart growth, gasoline taxes and other measures that can reduce energy demand in urban centers, which is where a growing majority of the world's population is becoming concentrated and where most of its energy is used.
