This book examines the environmental benefits of urban living through the author's experiences of living in New York City. His core thesis is that if Americans really want to reduce their impact on the planet, they need to live closer together, in places more like Manhattan. To most eyes, New York doesn't look very green, but he shows that it is, because people live in apartments that are inherently easier to heat than houses, and mostly walk or use public transport.
A convincing case...Pugnacious and contrarian The New York Times Turns conventional wisdom on its head and takes a clear-eyed look at what 'green' might truly mean San Francisco Chronicle
