Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Urban areas are both climate change hotspots and the seedbeds of experiments and solutions that may help avoid or moderate some of the worst predicted climate change impacts. Cities are estimated to be responsible for between 71 to 75% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and their concentrations of populations, economic activities and infrastructure create heightened risks from heatwaves, floods, sea level rise and other impacts that climate change will aggravate (see Figure 1). Yet urban areas are also the source of many potential solutions to these issues and are developing alternative housing experiments, renewable energy options, cooling roofs and other mitigation and adaptation innovations and experiments to address climate change.
