    Cities Can Stop Climate Change

    How to fix climate change: put cities, not countries, in charge; It can’t be left to dysfunctional nation states to tackle – but as Oslo and Seoul have shown, metropolitan centres can rise to the challenge of global warming

    Benjamin Barber, 7 May 2017 (UK Guardian)

    “Climate change is the most urgent challenge facing humankind…[but national governments have been] hopelessly ineffective…The problem isn’t the science…[It is in] politics that the struggle for sustainability must be fought and won…[but can’t be won] in increasingly dysfunctional nation states…[They are moving] far too slowly…However, there is an ample menu of sustainable options available to cities wishing to address climate change aggressively – and they can amplify their impact by coordinating…[policies like] divestment of public funds from carbon energy companies; investment to encourage renewable energy and green infrastructure; municipal carbon taxes; fracking and drilling bans; new waste incineration technologies; regulation of the use of plastic bottles and bags; policies to improve public transport and reduce car use; and recycling…Cities are the coolest political institutions on Earth…The challenge facing cities and citizens is to summon the necessary political will to do the things we know how to do – but have not done – and then to do them democratically…” click here for more
